Red flag - While this would seem to be a helping reminder it may also be a move to gain more cumulative data about webmasters.
That's too paranoid for my palate, Sarge. Google already has the webmaster associated with those sites and they already have the data - it will populate as soon as the webmaster verifies the site.
If Google was suggesting you put Analytics on another site, then maybe I'd be suspicious. But not Webmaster Tools.
