Having looked at how this change has effect two of our money sites as well as multiple EMD sites we own that are not fully developed it looks like this was a simple change on Google's part.
I think G- simply removed any previous protection EMDs had against the over optimization penalties they have been rolling out this year. So BlueWidgets.com is now just as vulnerable to being over optimized for the term "Blue Widgets" as any other site.
The problem for us is that we have no idea how to stop people from using our site name when linking to us.
