I think this is just what Google want SEO's to do. I do not intend to start another conspiracy theory but you are playing right in to their hands.
Personally I am with Powdork. I never mention adwords but give a gentle push toward overture. I strongly suggest other SEO pros do the same if they get a client wanting instant traffic. It is the only way we can turn this around.
I was actually trying to paint the picture and let others make a decision based on the facts, but I was certainly trying to suggest the very view you just presented.
I NEVER thought I would say this, but I would definitely rather give my money to Overture than Adwords right now, and quite honestly, the ROI on Overture is getting to be a lot better lately (when compared with Adwords).
Not only that, I am getting more traffic, especially for new sites, from Yahoo and MSN. Therefore, I must put the money in the right hands.
