Let's Get This Started!
Audino's ears look pretty wing like. The stethoscopes on the end look a whole lot like the tips of some swallowtails. That thing didn't turn out to be flying.
You've got it backwards, Nymph to refer to bugs came after the original Greek meaning of the word to refer to the mythological beings.
That's what people keep forgetting when they keep relation Nymphia/Sylveon to animals and/or plants that include the "nymph"/"sylv" in their biological classifications.
With that being said, in my opinion, Sylveon would be passable to me as a Pokemon that looks remotely flying type while also looking like a proper eeveelution.
"It's appearance should be very indicative that it can fly if it were a flying type eeveelution." Like I've stated earlier, not every flying type Pokemon have wings, and not all of them can even learn fly. As such, Sylveon certainly doesn't need those features if other flying Pokemon never required them.
I see no reason why it is impossible for Sylveon to be a flying type, and until confirmed, I'll keep my hopes on Pokemon X and Y not receiving any new types.
I will admit, there is one reason and one reason only why I'm hoping there is no Fairy type.
Because the site that's pushing this theory, to the point of having already put it in it's type chart, should know better than to release information like this. If it is true, there's no way they could have learnt this without someone having broken an NDA. Their webmaster lost his job with the Spanish Official Pokémon Magazine after what happened last time, for goodness sake.

Recently I started to follow Hiro's twitter account (he has it locked), and now I'm stalking older tweets.
The "sacred cow" thing is a common slang for someone who is "untouchable" inside any organization, either because (s)he's a high-up or is protected by one. Still, he said in another tweet that the information filtering is something delicate.
Anyway, I'm stuck to the idea that Nintendo allows very slightly filtering in a confusing way, to create hype and discussions like this. Action, suspense, love, hate, surprise, thrill, revenge, intrigue, blood, death. How will this story continue? What to expect? All of this in the next episode. Stay tuned.

Back on the subject of whether or not Xerneas will have a new type, I always thought that if Xerneas were going to be typed according to the existing G5 system, he'd probably be Psychic+Steel. Not that we really need another Metagross/Bronzong typing in the areana, but those look like metallic legs, and the classy antlers seem to imply some kind of mental power. Plus, if Yveltal is a Dark+Flying type (he certainly looks the part), Psychic+Steel would put Xerneas elementally neutral with Yveltal.
