iTunes Store Terms of Service Disallow Use of Purchased Music as Ring Tones

From the iTunes Store Terms of Service, section 9:

(viii) You may not use Products as a musical “ringer” in connection with phone calls.

There’s no way to enforce this restriction with DRM-free iTunes Plus tracks, of course. Anyone know if this EULA restriction is new?

Update: It’s new. Here’s Google’s cache of the previous iTunes Store terms, which contain no mention of phone ringers.
