DayTrader, who is a News Researcher at Dinar Updates, has some interesting commentary. Here are my thoughts:
Article 140 is much more complex than many realize. If you read Article 140 in the Iraq constitution, it refers to Article 58 of the Law of Administration for the State of Iraq for the Transitional Period that outlines all the steps that must be completed. This was a document constructed by Paul Bremmer to be used until a permanent constitution could be developed and ratified by Iraq. Article 58 states:
(A) The Iraqi Transitional Government, and especially the Iraqi Property Claims Commission and other relevant bodies, shall act expeditiously to take measures to remedy the injustice caused by the previous regime’s practices in altering the demographic character of certain regions, including Kirkuk, by deporting and expelling individuals from their places of residence, forcing migration in and out of the region, settling individuals alien to the region, depriving the inhabitants of work, and correcting nationality. To remedy this injustice, the Iraqi Transitional Government shall take the following steps:
(1) With regard to residents who were deported, expelled, or who emigrated; it shall, in accordance with the statute of the Iraqi Property Claims Commission and other measures within the law, within a reasonable period of time, restore the residents to their homes and property, or, where this is unfeasible, shall provide just compensation.
(2) With regard to the individuals newly introduced to specific regions and territories, it shall act in accordance with Article 10 of the Iraqi Property Claims Commission statute to ensure that such individuals may be resettled, may receive compensation from the state, may receive new land from the state near their residence in the governorate from which they came, or may receive compensation for the cost of moving to such areas.
(3) With regard to persons deprived of employment or other means of support in order to force migration out of their regions and territories, it shall promote new employment opportunities in the regions and territories.
(4) With regard to nationality correction, it shall repeal all relevant decrees and shall permit affected persons the right to determine their own national identity and ethnic affiliation free from coercion and duress.
(B) The previous regime also manipulated and changed administrative boundaries for political ends. The Presidency Council of the Iraqi Transitional Government shall make recommendations to the National Assembly on remedying these unjust changes in the permanent constitution. In the event the Presidency Council is unable to agree unanimously on a set of recommendations, it shall unanimously appoint a neutral arbitrator to examine the issue and make recommendations. In the event the Presidency Council is unable to agree on an arbitrator, it shall request the Secretary General of the United Nations to appoint a distinguished international person to be the arbitrator.
(C) The permanent resolution of disputed territories, including Kirkuk, shall be deferred until after these measures are completed, a fair and transparent census has been conducted and the permanent constitution has been ratified. This resolution shall be consistent with the principle of justice, taking into account the will of the people of those territories.

The challenge has always been how to implement the required changes. Those steps coupled with the fact that some of the people that Saddam Hussein forced out and those Sunnis that he brought in are no longer living. The resolution will have to involve their children, plus the process will also be challenged in identifying and finding all these families. This is not a quick fix. IMO that is why Abadi gave the responsibility to create an implementation plan to Barzani and the governor of the Kirkuk province. All of that said, I don't believe that the implementation of Article 140 is tied to the revaluation of Iraq's currency. I haven't found any reference to Article 140 in any of the UN resolutions or SBA documents between the IMF, CBI and GOI.
