Hyperbola: Altair Ascent CH4 fueled?

In an informative posting Rob Coppinger at Flight Hyperbola, after hearing NASA engineers discussing the possibility Altair, the eventual Constellation lunar lander, might end up designed as a single-stage vehicle, is now asking if the Ascent Stage (illustrated above) may be fueled by liquid methane (CH4).

If so, will XCOR Aerospace get the contract?
