Pretty soon Samsung is going to own the entire ecosystem. Google is ensuring that margins stay razor thin. They're going to have to cut manufacturers in on their profits from content and advertising. A race to the bottom does not excite me.
It's only destructive if the Nexus 4 is successful. To the mass market I don't think it will be, even though it's a very cool phone.

To your average Joe/Sally comparing a Windows, Apple, and Google phone it is one of the most expensive out there (because afaik they aren't offering it subsidized) and it doesn't have LTE. Not a recipe for success.
