It is not about the /download/ of packages, but about the /upload/.

Although the FTP access for uploading packages was "anonymous FTP",
only packages signed by one of the projects admististrators are 
accepted. So it is not really anonymous anyway.

But a side-effect is this: with the anonymous FTP an administrator could
say to someone "please upload this for me - here is the package and my
signature" - That will be no longer possible...?
