Is the FDA Plotting to Curb eCig Market? Regs Coming in December

We all know that the FDA was planning on coming out with some kind of regulations covering e-cigarettes. That got somewhat delayed when the government shutdown got the FDA's proposal stuck at the OMB. It appears there has finally been some movement. The OMB published the FDA's deeming regulation information on the December agenda. The full rule is kind of hard to read and is mostly boiler plate. However, there's a bit at the very end of this rule template that is giving me the creeps.

It seems that the agency is intent not on ensuring e-cigarettes are safe and not marketed to children, but to slow down the uptake on products consumers are gravitating to.  We all know that means e-cigarettes.  I'm afraid things could indeed be getting very dark.
