Bigelow Open to Other Launch Providers

According to Chris Reed,

"Whatever the initial agreement on the Atlas 5, [Bigelow Aerospace is] very much open to using - and want to encourage the availability of - other, privately developed launchers (e.g. they have a Falcon 9 reservation) both during the five years starting in 2011 and beyond"

RLV and Space Transport News has more thoughts on Bigelow's plans and accomplishments.

Why is there no mention of SpaceX? I bet that they would be less expensive than an Atlas 5.
