Default RS 2.5 Front Diff...open or LSD?

Stock, what is the front diff is it open or is it some sort of LSD. I have heard contradicting things from different sources. I know the rear doesn't have a diff like the WRX, but what about the front?

Front is open on all current USDM Subarus. Only STis get an LSD in front.

The rear diff on MY00 and MY01 RS's are a limited slip rear viscous coupling, like the WRX.
