Maybe that is the next target of spammers; posting millions of fake queries to google so that their desired keywords appear as the first suggestion in the auto completion list.
That (automated submissions) is against the Google TOS. I believe they would ban any IP that did that.
What Google will apparently target are low quality scraper sites, not scraper sites per se.
What exactly does a high quality scraper site look like? :)
