Non-mileage earning web fares?

As I was checking out the new aa.com web site, http://new.aa.com , specifically the 2002 Platinum Membership Guide, I noticed that there was a condition added in the mileage earning chart. It said this:

"Excludes American Airlines consolidator fares booked in O and fares booked in Q with travel originating in Europe (and equivalent booking codes on partner airlines1 ) and Internet fares noted as non-mileage earning."

I have never seen this condition before for certain Internet fares. Is AA heading towards that direction in prohibiting mileage earning on certain web fares?

A lot of Web fares are noted as non-mileage-earning, but that's left-over verbiage from a brief experiment in that direction a year or more ago. Unless something has changed very recently, all fares the general public can book on aa.com earn miles.
