Does this mean that *all* CQWW contest QSOs from top stations will no longer be 
valid for
DXCC credit?

>From DXCC rules, Section III, sub 5:

"5. The presentation in any public forum of logs or other representations
of station operation showing details of station activity or other
information from which all essential QSO elements (time, date, band, mode
and callsign) for individual contacts can be derived creates a question as
to the integrity of the claimed QSOs with that station during the period
encompassed by the log. Presentation of such information in any public
forum by the station operator, operators or associated parties is not
allowed and may be considered sufficient reason to deny ARRL award credit
for contacts with any station for which such presentations have been made.
Persistent violation of this provision may result in disqualification from
the DXCC program."
