I see it from a different perspective. The ODP has a lot to offer a prospective buyer. I believe the official launch date was in 1998 June. That's 9 years of site reviews by humans! I think it would be rather difficult to replace that. There is a solid foundation there to start with. We all know that certain categories need to be restructured, that one is a no brainer. But, for the most part, the ODP is a diamond mine of Data and Editors.
