That's what I think too, Harry.
It just doesn't make sense to me that they'd ask your permission to pull the same log files that they'd been supposedly
automagically uploading to their servers all along.
Doesn't change the fact that from a technological
standpoint, I believe they could
access the log files anytime they wanted (from a connected/registered device). But I'm more than satisfied that they're not, in fact, doing that (with the exception of your aforementioned technical support scenario).
