According to Jensense's recent blog entry, she contacted google and the response was "no". However, kontera and intelitxt are now allowed, and that is new.
I saw your first post before it got edited, and went there, I didn't see either ad and surfed well into it...

You can do it but is grounds for banning under both of the TOS agreements. They say it messes up the tracking/serving but who knows.
They can do it until they are found out and then it's "hasta la vista baby"

Also too that site is most likely a premium publisher from the looks of its almost solid green toolbar PR (and considering what it is).
Deep pocket sites sometimes get special permission to "break the rules". Who knows, maybe they hit G with a "we will do it, or not run any" and G might have caved in.
I don't think it's possible to get away with it without discovery. Google's adsense bot most likely looks for signs of not allowed code like yahoo. Would be simple for them to do it, can't imagine them not.
