The answer to both of your questions is 'yes'. They ARE only for the Airbusses, and the entire fleet will be painted in these colors, as Airbusses will BE the entire fleet shortly.
I think they're horrible. Although rumor had it that some planes would have the black marks, and some would be blue... who knows. But this scheme (except for the red S and the sky... weird) make me think I've gone colorblind. Or that my monitor has gone to B&W on me.
I like the silver, but... it's just like their Detroit big boy competition, NordVest.
OH well. The MD-80 is a nicer ride for me, anyway.

An Airbus A321-211 (c/n 1794) was seen at the Airbus Industrie plant at Hamburg-Finkenwerder (XFW) in the old(er) white/blue livery, so to me it doesn't look as if all the Airbuses get these silver/black colours.
