I wonder if this has something to do with their "natural language search" efforts
I would say not.
I suspect it is entirely about the fact that Google SERPs are still far too easily gamed.
I wouldn't expect Matt Cutts to admit it, but I'd have more respect if he did.
And yes, I would like my search terms back too.
