I don't agree for two reasons.
1)I can't draw attention to adsense ads on my site, yet this is exactly what they are doing. Encouraging mistaken clicks.
2)Smart Pricing (or whatever it's called now). Mistaken clicks end up costing the publisher money. If your clicks generate few sales (which is likely for a mistaken click) your eCPM (or whatever the right metric is) is lowered. Money is supposedly returned to the advertiser.
The burden of Google's and the advertiser's deception (I don't really know who is responsible for the "arrow button" format because I don't do the Adwords side) is placed on the back of the publisher.
