One way vs Two way link exchanging!

Let's say a blog contains 10 backlinks from another site. Let's suppose that the linking is a reciprocal one(two way). Also let the blog has a PR of 2.
Now If the blog owner (blogger) deletes all the link from his "blogroll" section, but his blog's link is still in the another sites (those 10 sites).
Simply, what I'm trying to say is that the blog has switched from two-way linking to one-way linking (by deleting the links under his blogroll).
Now my question is that "Would this result in an increase in PR, say 2 to 3 or 4) in a next PR update?"

It seems obvious, but I wanna know! :D

Certainly the blog's removal of outbound links will mean it'll be keeping the PR it once offered.

Assuming all else remains constant this should result in increased internal PR over some period time. What that eventually means to TBPR, I have no clue and wouldn't really care.

PR means nothing. These days. Will still get traffic without the "juice" but then again that is traffic, which is what any of us wants. Forget PR...

Forget about pagerank entirely. Make linking decisions based on what benefits your end user. The time you spend agonizing over these kinds of useless metrics could be better spent improving your content, your business, locating relevant link partners, etc.

Increasing the PR is not a useless metric at all :P
