I don't see much problem with that (but IANAL). I guess Google would
have a good claim for damages even without this ToS if we did
something that ended up hurting them legally.

I don't personally feel too concerned to use my own Google account,
but this does raise the issue of whether we should have some official
"Apache" account at Google for setting up services like Analytics.

They must have changed the ToS as I can't find that in the current version.

I wonder if they have some mechanism for notifying people when the
terms change...

I guess that's something for the PRC to answer, assuming those terms
still apply.
