Post ?485 to PR: using the new point system

Please help.

I am a 485 Skilled Graduate Visa holder and i am legible for transitional arrangements. I chose a skill from the old sol (sol-schedule 2) and I have the option to use the old sol or new sol for permanent GSM, so long applying before 31 Dec 2012.
I do not have enough points (120) to apply using the old system.
I however have enough points for the new system (65), which is coming in July 2011.
Am I able to apply under the new system?
I have searched everywhere and nowhere do they say those eligible for transitional arrangements can/should only apply using the old point system and not the new one.
The FACT SHEET for new point system does not restrict those eligible for transitional arrangement from using it either. Rather, it states that it is upon an individual to either use the old one or the new one.
Please help.
