DIAC has announced that Category 5 state or territory sponsored applicants can expect to hear from a Case Officer by 31 May 2012. Interesting wording - all state or territory sponsored can expect to "be contacted" by a CO; but only s/c 487 can expect to be "assigned to and contacted" by a CO.
No news yet on Cat 5 independent or family sponsored.
