I like this change, I've grown tired of my competitor creating dozens of pages targeting a keyword phrase I am #1 for in hopes that one of their attempts stick. No keyword data = no phrase keywords to target.
This will help kill off independent site stat analysis tools.
Good riddance, I've been blocking the bots of several of the most popular sites because they do nothing but scope my site and sell the data to others. The fewer ways a competitor has to attempt to figure out what keywords my traffic comes in with the better, I hope they crack down on automated queries next. This is good news for non-seo minded content creators.
