iWork Pages/MacBook Pro Retina Display

UPDATE 02 August 2013:  Retina quality pages documents have the extension .pages-tef

I've seen a few mentioned of Pages being "aliased/blurry" on the new Retina Display MacBook Pros.
The solution is surprisingly simple: do a "get info" on the application and uncheck the "Open in Low Resolution" option.

This option appears on all of the iWork applications.
I have no idea why Apple set the default to "Open in Low Resolution," I assume this is an artifact of migrating the application from an older machine, but still….

UPDATE: I had one document show up with "blank" pages after disabling Open in Low Resolution. However, if I switched back to "low resolution" mode the document displayed correctly. This is disconcerting
