The Homeland Security Dept is still fairly new and they don't have everything figured out yet, but tossed out this "bone" to give some people peace of mind. They are right to think this will be ignored as it pretty much already has been by the populous. It probably has more meaning to law enforcement and other agencies who are actively training to deal with a terrorist threat then to you and me. In this case it should be used as the current threat level system used in the military. Each level has policies and procedures to be taken and therefore has meaning.
