I'm pretty sure it does.  It's easy enough to test and see.

I think (and this is just off the top of my head) if you find the 
[item-options] tag in the cart component (templates/components/cart) and 
add display=1 to it then it will just display the choice but not the widget.

Yes, but they haven't been officially released yet.  You can get the 
Matrix improvements in the nightly build or via CVS.  For more info see 
the relevant comments in the WHATSNEW-5.5 file:
