Redesigned Seat Altea Minivan Drawings Real?

After the 2011 Ford Explorer sketch (fake), 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL 63 AMG picture (real) and the Volvo S60 Coupe-Convertible photo (fake), we now have yet another group of images of an alleged future model out in the open. This time it's a set of drawings of the Leon/Golf/Octavia/TT/A3 etc. etc. based Seat Altea / Altea XL minivan.

So are these drawings real? Yes they are but there's a catch; as our fellow Spanish Autobloggers pointed out and as we confirmed by checking the official European trademark office, these drawings were submitted to the agency on December 12, 2007.

Three years is a long time in the automotive industry, so our best guess would be that these sketches are either from an early prototype of the production Altea XL or a redesign proposal that never received the green light.
