He said he'll treat some of the younger POVs like adults in ADwD, even though they're technically young adults. Um... he thinks Arya is "older than some of the 40-year-olds in the book", what with all she's gone through.

He isn't planning on dropping any POVs in ADwD, other than you-know-who.

Oh, and Catelyn is three syllables. The "y" in Tywin is pronounced like a long "i". Targaryen is Tar-gair-ee-en (I think).

And some mildly spoilerish stuff:
