Motorola has always been a bit loose about letting "XC" labeled parts go
out to production (I have seen Macs with XC68020s, and some production
XC88000 stuff).

I too have some XC labeled 6800 stuff, and yes, it is in weird packages -
it almost looks like the ceramic did not form correctly!

I think Motorola has another prefix for things that stay in the labs (like
preproduction prototypes), but I can not remember what it is.
