Ok folks - I received no input on this one so I'm kinda thinking it's not a common problem.
The best price that I could get for the part brand new was around $865, so I went used.
I used car-part dot com to find a brake module for $75 shipped from car with 35,xxx miles (they had a couple, and I had a choice). The module is on the passenger side of the engine bay with 4 brake lines going out, and 2 going it. 3 mounting bolts for the bracket. It wasn't terribly difficult, but you'll need some extensions and swivel sockets to do the job, which only took an hour.
The used part did the job - I hope this helps save someone else some significant cash, because Lord knows that any Honda Stealership will charge $1,200 plus for the part and an hour or two of labor plus diagnostic charges.
To be fair, we did use a professional scanner to read where the faults were coming from, so we didn't just "guess" at what needed to be replaced.
I sure hope this helps someone out there!
