[1105.1873] Wide binaries as a critical test of Classical G

The authors claim to have detected an upper limit to the relative velocities in wide binary star systems, independent of separation for over three orders of magnitude, as predicted by modified gravity theories.

I'd be interested in opinions on that. Stars are not a usual cosmologist's specialty, so I can't really judge. I wonder, provided these measurements are correct, if one can still try to save dark matter as the factor responsible for this phenomenon.
