I'm not seeing that. Seems like links pages are still being targeted ... but badly identified! I have about 50-60 pages of my 300 page site that links out to various resources like Digg, ABI, CICA etc. and they have all been grey-barred.
Seems like even if you link out to good/relevant resources Google still thinks you're a link farm.
I wouldn't be surprised if Google were making a move to turn all internal pages grey over time. They said they would probably never removed Pagerank from the toolbar, but maybe just displaying the Pagerank of the site's main page would still make it "useful" but remove the link selling capacity?
P.S. that will be $100,000 for the consultation Goog if you run with that idea ;)
