Those two lines just cut you out.
If millions of sites add those two lines, it's Google that's cut out.
For instance, simply getting all the major news sources to pull the plug on Google, and people have to look elsewhere for their news, which would surely start the exodus.
You can't "fix" the issue by banning Google's spiders.
One person can't, but millions of webmasters can.
See, it's that "can't do" attitude that never gets anything done, people just complain and the status quo prevails.
I'd like to see more competition, see that 64% search share scattered among 4-5 players.
Won't happen unless more people move to Bing and Yahoo, and since Yahoo gave up and handed over search to Bing we'll only have 2 major players in reality.
