Nothing short of a full fledged TV interests me, and if they were doing that we'd have had a lot more rumour from the factories producing it I think.
Any revised box can only be for games (who cares) and/or cable integration which will of course be USA only (quadruple who cares).
I'm not interested in a fully fledged tv, I have one already and only a year or so old. An updated Apple TV box is much more interesting, even for someone outside of the US.
With all the rumors floating around, Apple is working on SOMETHING for Apple TV. That much is sure. I don't think they are going to open the flood gates and allow all sorts of apps for Apple TV. I expect its something better.
If I had to guess I think the ability for iOS devices to use the AppleTV as a secondary display (like in Mavericks) is in the works. It might be limited to the iPhone 5S and next gen iPad, but I think it is coming. If iOS could use AppleTV as a secondary screen that would create a lot of new and exciting opportunities for app developers. Plus, then you don't really need apps on the Apple TV. If you want something on the Apple TV you just write something for the iPhone and iPad that has support for the AppleTV built in.
Just my completely random theory. My only proof is that if they've got it working in Mavericks they could probably do it in iOS too.

You can already do that for all the instances in which it would make any sense to do.
I think I've finally discovered the reason Wall Street treats Apple so horribly. They don't have a clue what its stock symbol is, and so all the money that should be going to AAPL has been going to APLL, APPL, APPE, and APLE for YEARS!
