I find it pretty presumptuous of Google to assume they can do what they wish with advertising that is not on their own sites.
Well if publishers don't like what they're doing, they can remove AdSense. Choice is a great thing! It is after all in their interest that the publisher makes more money and who doesn't like making more money? If they over step the mark and sacrifice quality for dollars then publishers will leave and they'll have no choice but to re-evaluate their strategy.
