I believe the German version of SHE LOVES YOU (Sie Liebt Dich) is in stereo. I used to play it and the vocal track is on one side and the instrumental is on the other. They could take the instrumental and mix the English vocals to make a hybrid stereo version.
That's gonna be a challenge. The only known "STEREO" recording that exits was a fan-made mash-up from the "Beatles Remixers Group" online.
This fan combined the mono single and synced it with the instrumental track of the GERMAN STEREO "Sie Liebt Dich" recording. I've heard it ,and it's about a true stereo recording as it gets. Maybe, HMX and Apple will consider that, if they can replicate it.
Heck, they've already done it with the "Please Please Me" recordings.
The whole reason Sie Liebt Dich was completely rerecorded is because they couldn't take out the English vocals from She Loves You, so they probably wouldn't be able to do it here either. Then again, they were able to (albeit painstakingly) separate the instruments in the two-track masters, so who knows what's possible these days?
It will come eventually. Probably in the form of re-records. Paul and Ringo will obviously be used, Dhani Harrison will stand in for George and Julian will take his father's place. Beatles fans and RB fans everywhere will freak out.

That's what I was thinking. Wasn't that whole album done in mono? Didn't seem to stop them from getting Twist and Shout, I Saw Her Standing There or Boys in the game....
Edit: Nevermind, just read the "recording" notes for Please Please Me. Two track recording so they could do a mono AND stereo mix.
