The move is a medium between not allowing people to manage the information associated with them and not collecting that data in the first place.
Shouldn't this read:
"... allowing people to manage the locally stored information..."?

I seriously doubt that any data collected by Google will actually be deleted from all servers and back-ups, but only marked as "hidden from user".

Believe Google and you'll believe anything. A few months ago Google REMOVED the option (Search Settings) of choosing NOT to have the extremely annoying search-term history from being displayed in the drop-down list - typically one could only do this when signed out, but one cannot do this at all now. and this option hasn't been restored in Google's latest tinkering. No longer using Google Search
