Are "they" dumbing down habanero peppers?

Jalapeno's used to be plenty hot, but there was a concerted push to dumb them down so that they became a more tame, and thus more widely used ingredient.

I just put an entire habanero in a quesadilla and barely got any burn. It was disappointing.

So, the non-burning question; are they dumbing down habaneros now too?
