I think the general concensus is that, to all extents and purposes (SEO included) DMOZ is dead. Some years ago I flapped about trying to get a few sites included. In the end I managed to get two in there, but have developed several dozen niche sites since. I haven't bothered with DMOZ at all in the last 3 years, and it does not seem to have affected the rate at which new sites can get ranked. Basically, hard work does it, and (DMOZ or not) nothing else!
