On the Sitemaps blog today, they state about the new sitemaps interface,

We may use the summary page to tell you if a site has violated the webmaster guidelines so you can correct the problems and request reinclusion.

I see it as a great tool for honest webmasters, however also a tool for spammers to see how far they can push their luck.

I think that Google reports with this feature only completely dropped sites.
