Okay, a little more on this. I'm getting back amongst the living, been fighting a stomach flu recently, no fun.

I haven't seen this yet, not everybody has. From what I read it probably has something to do with the account. Possibly amount of activity, if you have a credit card on file, balance on account, etc.

They have had some cases where accounts were hacked into one way or another. If your account is compromised they now have an alternate email and security questions so you can get your password reset. In all cases Apple refunded the accounts.
