Peculiar terms and conditions

In the terms and conditions we all signed up for, item #2 is...

Implementation; Ad Placement. You agree to comply with the technical specifications provided by Google to enable proper display of the Ads in connection with Your Site(s), including without limitation by not modifying the Javascript or other programming provided to You by Google in any way. Ads shall be grouped by Google and displayed to end users of the Site(s) as ad units (such groups of Ads collectively referred to as "Ad Units") in standard formats as specified in the FAQ. You may select a format approved by Google for the display of Ad Units in connection with the Site(s), but You acknowledge and agree that Ads: (a) shall only be displayed in connection with the Site(s), each of which is subject to review and approval by Google in its discretion at any time; and (b) shall be subject to the placement guidelines set forth in the FAQ. In addition, You agree that only one (1) Ad Unit shall be displayed on each Site Web. You also agree not to display any other text-based or content-targeted advertisement(s) on the same Web page in connection with which an Ad Unit or any Ad is displayed.

The bit I have highlighted in bold makes little sense - it looks as if they only want me to have one ad unit on my website. I would suggest (and indeed have suggested) they have missed out the all-important word Page, and have proceeded on that assumption.

Do we all agree?

I hope they have mist out the word "page". Otherwise a lot of us are violating their Terms of Conditions. Have you contacted Google about this? If so let us know what they say.

I have asked Google, but got a pot-boiler reply thanking me for my feedback.

I am still unclear about this. Are they saying only one page per website can have the adsense banner or skyscraper?

Im sure its a typo. The adsense guys did have a look at our site when we queried some definitions. They commented on at least 2 pages, so if we were only allowed one, im sure they would have told us!

and they have banners from google on a lot of the pages...
