It looks like Specialized will likely be selling the complete bikes only (at least initially) in Australia.

What are my options from finding and importing the frameset?

For 2014 the Day One Alfine 11 is replaced by the Alfine Di2 with Sti shifters.

Woo! Good news. Still no word on the frame set, but this is a good start.

I must say, this thread and associated investigations have pushed me more towards a little more relaxed geometry style of bike, but this is definitely still on the list.

My LBS confirmed that only the AWOL Comp and Deluxe complete bikes are coming to Australia ($1500 and $2300 respectively). No frameset.

Feb 2015 for a Comp in medium, if interested.

Update:

These are now expected in March in my LBS.

$2500 for the Comp, still no frameset available.
