More details on Minecraft Pocket Edition strongholds revealed

A week ago, Mojang confirmed that strongholds would be arriving in Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.9.0. However, the main purpose of a stronghold is to be an entryway into The End. Although we knew that The End wouldn't be arriving for a while, the question was why put a dungeon in? Today Jens tweeted on his Twitter profile:
"The mob spawner block now spawns silverfish in the strongholds. Haven't done proper rendering of the block yet, though..."

He also posted the above screenshot on Instagram, displaying a generated but non-functional End Portal. This confirms that while The End will not be in MCPE for a while, at least there will already be a portal in everyone's world when it's added.Curiously enough, there are visible Eyes of Ender placed in the portal despite Jens already saying that Eyes of Ender will not be in 0.9.0. Perhaps they have been added, but do not function to locate the End Portal? See the source link for the original tweet.Source: Twitter

the randon spawn chance might make them spawn that way. In PC there are usually some in the portal already

Maybe the ender eyes will just be a block that can't be collected

What if adding all of the eyes of ender on the portal frame would take you a place similar to the nether reactor except with end stone obviously replacing netherack?
