Okay, back on topic regarding 2008 code changes to the NEC and GFCI's.
Yup, 210.8 changed quite a bit and many exceptions were removed.
Used to be you could have a receptacle for say a freezer in a garage or unfinished basement be non GFCI protected. That exception went away.
Interestingly enough receptacles in residential kitchens only receptacles used to serve the counter top need GFCI protection.
Turn the page to 210.12 for residential rooms requiring Arc-Fault protection and notice that kitchens are not listed.
This leaves refers and built-in appliances in residential kitchens not being required to have either GFCI or Arc-fault protection as I see it.
