---- Why doesn't a new and improved competitor to DMOZ arise?

And you think there's possibly a market for another volunteer directory built for the sole benefit of the volunteers?
No, not in my opinion. DMOZ has reached critical mass and until the moment that actions by AOL or DMOZ management cause the current volunteers to leave en masse, the directory will stay active and attract possible new volunteers like a magnet. It's like a black hole, once there is enough mass, it will automatically attract more matter to increase its mass.
