OK, so maybe being in ODP doesn't guarantee you a pr 5, but let's not nitpick my point - the fact is that 7 of the top 10 (back to my example) on an important serp average less than 50 backward links each and they all have pr5 except for one pr4. They are beating pages that have higher pr and are (IMO) better optimized. From what I can tell, the only reason many of these are in the top 10 is because they have the keywords in their url.
