     Hi David
    Since the public SPACETRACK catalog does not contain so called "sensitive" 
    information as such I dont think this is the intention of the new scheme. As 
    Jonathan pointed out it would appear that the intention is to prevent the 
    anti-social behaviour of people who download far more than necessary and are now 
    planning on a rather more complex system to prevent such.
    As regards access to "sensitive" material this will not affect elements that are 
    provided by other sources ( eg the amateur network).

    I think that limiting access to such so-called 'sensitive' information may be 
    the point of this change.
