Maybe the FAQ meant "shared encryption of filenames is a planned feature?"
Filenames are definitely encrypted:

File sizes and directory structure, however, are not. They can still leak a fair amount of information. For me that's no big deal... I don't mind too much if someone figures out where I store my financial documents as long as they can't read the names and numbers.
