Does Google's New Privacy Policy Mean No Keyword Referrer Data?

I read several articles today and on CNN on the new privacy policy by google that can track your searches and you can't opt out. I am hearing from a lot of people that they will be switching to Bing. This could change the search engine winners and losers dramatically and very quickly. How will this affect our doing SEO, when google now blocks keyword info from reaching our log files?

As I read it, the new privacy policy does not mean that everyone is FORCED to log in. Instead it explains what happens across all Google properties IF you are logged in to ayn one of them - data will be shared across all Google properties.

Our new Privacy Policy makes clear that, if you're signed in, we may combine information you've provided from one service with information from other services. In short, we'll treat you as a single user across all our products, which will mean a simpler, more intuitive Google experience.

Important note: the policy itself is already under discussion in this thread: [webmasterworld.com...] so please confine this discussion to the keyword data implications.
