This one's newly disallowed in Google's robots.txt. Anyone know what it could mean?

(On a side-note, I wonder which other robots.txt on the web has a PageRank of 5!

An Open database perhaps ? Maybe it could evolve to complement Checkout. Give out "Verified by Google" stickers or whatever.

I think Philipp meant What could this addition mean, not What is Safebrowsing.
