Google must look at this issue in a very sensible manner: they know that those who do care about their rankings should be able to spot the crappy backlinks. It makes sense not to show all backlinks with the link: command but to show all backlings in the WMTs. All that needs to be done is reporting the crappy backlinks. Those who do not report are approving the backlinks in google's eyes. This would make sense to me.
