This is a preview of what the FAA will incorporate into the FARs. For now it is an Advisory Circular which carries no weight of law. From the document itself:

1.1 Effect of Guidance. This guidance is not legally binding in its own right and will not be relied upon by the Department of Transportation (DOT) or the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as a separate basis for affirmative enforcement action or other administrative penalty. Regardless of whether you rely on this guidance, you are independently required to comply with all existing laws applicable to the operation of unmanned aircraft. Conforming your actions with this guidance is voluntary and nonconformity will not affect any right or obligation under any existing statute or regulation.
So basically don't screw up, but get used to this because it will be in the FARs sooner or later.
