How do I unlink my Google and Youtube accounts?

I searched google for finding instructions for unlinking my accounts, but it seems like even the instructions on Youtube are outdated about unlinking accounts. So far, I found no way to unlink the accounts without deleting my Google account:

http://www.google.com/support/youtube...
no option to unlink in account settings

https://www.youtube.com/my_account_unlink
gives me: Your account is permanently linked to a Google Account

Other questions on help.youtube.com that seem to be ignored:
http://help.youtube.com/group/youtube...
http://groups.google.com/group/Gmail-...

I cannot delete my account on youtube because it says that I signed in with a Google account and I was redirected to the Google Accounts page. When I click Edit next to My Products, I am only given an option to delete my gmail service.

Whats the problem? Is Google forcing their users to stay with Youtube?
