Bad, bad idea Google... just ignore the links you don't like and de-index the spammy pages that host them. There's just no need to open up this Pandora's Box.
I think the Pandora's box has been open a long long time. People have been Google Bowling sites for years. The difference here is google are being up front and transparent when your penalised. Surely thats not a bad thing
I also think disavow links will be a huge quality indicator and put the webmaster back in control.
