Command and Conquer 4 to use DRM?

There are some concerns that EA’s Command and Conquer 4 will utilize some sort of DRM.  While they are saying it does not incorporate DRM, it is still following the idea that Ubisoft has done with some of their recent games such as having to be connected to the internet at all times while playing.

From the Command and Conquer forums:

“-You do not need the disc in your machine to play. Your EA account just needs to have been activated by your serial key. After that, you can play Command & Conquer 4 on ANY MACHINE that has it installed. All you need to do is login.

-To play Command & Conquer 4, the computer needs to be connected to the internet. We’ve always made that clear as well.

So there ya go, no DRM, no disc in the drive necessary, just activate your account with your serial key and presto, you’re ready to go. It’s actually much easier than before.”

So they are saying there is no DRM but it incorporates recent DRM behavior?  As you can guess, there is a lot of confusion and a bit of backlash on it.  I agree with one of the posters, why should I need to be connected to the internet for a single player experience?  I understand the need for protecting your investments, but this is getting a bit out of hand.
