WSJ re Google Autolink

Since Google seems to be remaining silent with respect to webmasters' and website owners' concerns about the Google Toolbar's new beta Autolink feature, how's this from the Wall Street Journal's Walter Mossberg in today's Google Toolbar Inserts Links in Others' Sites, And That's a Bad Idea:

What if you had worked hard to design a Web page, carefully placing links just where you wanted them and carefully selecting the Web destinations to which those links led? And then, what if a company with great power on the Web started adding its own links to your page, drawing visitors away from your page to other sites of its own choosing?

The WSJ is that publication read by business types and, yes, lawyers.
