Well I'm not sure there isn't an older version of the TSIB out there (the brake dust one there's at least 3 or 4 versions of, originally it only covered 06-07, then was updated for 08s, and eventually 09s, etc).... apart from that there's 06 owners who bought extended lexus warranties (which go up to 8 years from in-service date, so the oldest 06s wouldn't be out of warranty under that until 2013) that might get that repair covered as well... and probably some CPO 06s that'd also be "under warranty" still when that came out....
I agree it sucks, but they can't repair everything forever for free....if you complain to Lexus corporate and they offer to split the cost that's probably the best you can hope for if you have no warranty at all.
