What a joke! Seriously, as an Aussie reading these forums - I really empathise with you all (I have an ATT branded Samsung Focus with no update from yours truly here).
In Australia - our No.1 Telco/Carrier (similar to your ATT) is Telstra. Here's the information we received from them back near the start of Feb. They met their proposed dates - and all Aussie local WP7 devices have the 8107 update.
I am shocked at the absolute disregard ATT has for WP7 customers. Thought this info might support your cause:

I wanted to share with you the current status and plan for the Windows Phone MCR2 update.
Microsoft provided the MCR2 update (Windows Phone 7.5 Commercial Refresh 2 Build 8107) to Telstra for testing on 20 January – this update has both Windows Phone OS fixes and HTC specific firmware patches. The update is in active test for both the HTC 7 Mozart and HTC HD7 and we hope to approve this shortly and are planning deployment commencing 16 February. The Samsung Galaxy W and LG Optimus 7Q will follow in the March timeframe. These dates are subject to change.
Regarding updates in general, Telstra strives to get software updates out as fast as humanly possible – we know it’s important to customers and it’s in our interest to have devices we sell running the latest software. Once software updates are submitted to Telstra they generally get turned around in 2-3 weeks (for minor updates) and 4-6 weeks in total for major updates (e.g. new OS versions). Telstra only publishes a public schedule for major updates – there are a large number of minor updates being worked on at any one time (right now there are 32 maintenance releases across a variety of products on our programme of work).
I’ll continue to update this forum with details of the Windows Phone MCR2 update as we get more information.
