Exactly. Only the significant melting of many large glaciers over land would cause any measurable rise is sea level. The antartic glaciers would be key in this. Ooops! They're expanding, as noted in this article - some of the ice pack may be breaking off, but that's because the glaciers over the Antartic land mass are expanding, pushing more ice out over the ocean, which then breaks off.
