I don't know if anyone knows, or has posted authoritatively on who controls the Android phone update process, but clearly since Google owns the OS they have a huge say in when Android phones get updated and to what version. Verizon is likely more involved in the update decision process than Moto, since the phone gets updated via their network, for their customers, and given Moto's current overall weakness relative to Google and VZW, Moto may just go along for the ride once, they release a phone.
