Possible Purple gear restriction for subs?

I was reading in the General Discussion forums, and I noticed someone posted a link here: http://www.swtor.com/free/features and they pointed out that when you mouse over the "item equipping" area in the subscriber column, it says subscribers would have to pay for authorization to equip most purple gear. It was pointed out in the free column, it says free players would have to pay for a license to buy their gear. Is this a simple mixup? A copy-paste issue? or was this intentional, as the difference in wording would indicate? Thanks for the help.....I hope its the former.

Your welcome and all, but is that intentional or not? im assuming that means it was not.

Greetings All,

This popup is actually incorrect and should say something along the lines of 'It is possible to equip all purple items you obtain depending on character class, level etc'

This will be rectified shortly.

Might want to make an official announcement on this. And post it somewhere conspicuous.

A lot of people are like me, and will continue to be a subscriber after F2P launches. However, if I ever have to pay additional money just to equip items that I already have, it's game over.
