Shimano 10-speed

I see new Ultegra parts listed as "10-speed". They use the term to refer to the freewheel and shifters, of course, but I've also seen it applied to the *brakes*. Is that just because "Ultegra 6600 10-speed" is the brand name, or is there something about the brakes that makes them part of a 10-speed gruppo?

Ultegra 6600 is a full group, including the brakes. The BR-6600 brakes are different from last years model that shipped with the 9s Ultegra group (the new ones are a big improvement, from what I've read) but brakes are in no way related to the drivetrain of the bike. Basically, use any brakes you like!
It is my belief that every person in this world has something to teach, and everything to learn.
