Example of LIFE Archive Results In Google Images

Google grants itself some special treatment in their image search engine. You may remember their hosted LIFE photo archive, which excludes search bots per its robots.txt file. Well, searching for large pictures for the query eric schmidt yesterday, I noticed a Life result popping up among the rest. In this case though, there was no domain shown below the image like for the rest of the results... and clicking on it would not frame the page, like other pages are usually framed when you find them through Google Images. What’s your opinion – do you frown on this or find it perfectly fair?
