I certainly can't think of any way this is going to be bad for me.
I think that this shouldn't be the case on Google. If you are a UK site and you only have a .com domain, got to ensure that the domain is with a UK server and not hosted elsewhere therefore ensuring you shouldn't have any difficulties.
I agree that this should be good for UK sites because more people will select the uk only option.
The problem is with 1&1 customers (like me) with .com sites - geolocated in Germany. I shall email their support now and move to a different host if I don't get a satisfactory answer.
Potential bad news for me, I am UK but .com names and hosted in USA.
Surely half the point of the net is to go where you want not where somebody else decides to send you?
