Amazon and personalized ads

In a Red Herring article, "Amazon's A9 Mystery", the author asks:
What's stopping Amazon from capitalizing on a system for pairing data on consumer buying habits with search engine-powered ads?
Good question.

Perhaps privacy is a big consideration there. Even if you make opt-in a requirement, there might be greater privacy related concerns on the Amazon side there. However, I still think that one of these ad networks (Google, yahoo, Amazon...) will open the pandora's box and try this strategy sometime soon...
