Intra-cloud plaintext?

I was looking at the image linked in this article and was actually somewhat alarmed. Am I crazy, or does just dropping all traffic to plaintext within one's own cloud sound like horrible design?

I'm not suggesting all traffic in all networks requires encryption, but traffic between services within a major cloud's network? Breach the perimeter and someone suddenly can get at everything.
