Google could (rightly) say this is our sandbox and if you want to play in it you have to play by our rules. :)
Those of us who run businesses require real names (unless cash only) for transactions, or the law requires that (certain kinds of transactions). Wouldn't be a bit surprised should G eventually (or governments, too) will require real names to access their net-based properties...including search.
