Is there some concern that you could have been driving the car with a low oil condition due to a bad pump and not known it? That doesn't seem very likely and BarryB's tale of woe suggests that the loss of the oil pump leads to a massive engine failure before you even get a low oil warning light.
I think it was suggested as a message from BMW that they stand behind their products for the long haul. Not because of possible damage.
