Subpages that have nothing to do with the domainname are banned as well.
Forgive me for asking the obvious question :) but what makes you think that a subpage ( for example let us use what appears in the browser address bar when that subpage is accessed )..
has "nothing to do with"
The domain name "keyword.com" appears in the address bar both times..
If Google have decided that they don't like the particular EMD, obviously they mean all of the particular EMD..not merely the "home page"..as that particular EMD is in the URL of every page of the site..
That said banning EMD sites is a little unsettling/surprising.
They haven't banned all of the EMDs, mine, and the EMDs of very many other webmasters, are all doing very nicely thank you :)
