Spider-Man's Joining The X-Men?

Is there something he's not telling us?

You have to hand it to Marvel, they know how do the promos and teasers. I just got this following image from them and I'm left wondering what the heck is going on.
 
At the beginning of March, we saw a mysterious teaser that had a bloody X-logo with the caption "We are the X-Men." But this one with Spider-Man? He's not a mutant. He's already on the New Avengers. Then again, Wolverine is also in the New Avengers, X-Men and X-Force. Maybe it's time the other teams start pushing their presence on the X-Men. Maybe the X-Men are being more tolerable in allowing non-mutants on the team. There's also the fact that Namor is on the team. For the longest time it was argued whether or not he was an actual mutant or not.
 
Marvel isn't saying anything about this but you can bet there will be some sort of news next Sunday, April 18 at the X-Men panel at C2E2. Hopefully we'll get some answers as to why Spider-Man is swinging around with Psylocke. I know he just lost his job as a photographer but I don't think the X-Men offer any real type of salary. 
 
Either way, I applaud Marvel for giving us this nice WTF moment on a Friday morning.
 
What do you think is going on? Should the X-Men only allow mutants on their teams? Isn't that...discrimination?
