From the actual announcement:

"we will require you to work with us directly if you believe your application will need more than one million individual user tokens"[0]

which sounds like "show us the money" to me. You can of course assert that "we want to talk to you" obviously means "we don't want to talk to you", but once you do so without evidence you're firmly in tinfoil hat territory.

Of course they mean they want to talk to you. But that doesn't mean they want money. More likely they'd want to acqui(hi)re you and incorporate whatever made made you successful into their product.

Which in some sense is still wanting the money!
