It's been happening for awhile and has probably already happened with some of the songs you've purchased. If in iTunes plus, you have the opportunity to pay 0.30 extra per track or 1/3 the cost of the album to remove DRM, that's what they're talking about. This is not available for everything yet, but that's coming soon.
BTW, if you buy the songs without DRM (or pay to have it removed), it will still store the files as those m4p files which other programs don't read. However, you can convert them to mp3 in iTunes -- this cannot be done with DRM protected tracks.
