I doubt it very much. I think sites are trying to be clever but making problems for themselves instead. This kind of nofollow abuse may be why Matt posted the recent video we're talking about...
I don't see it as abuse to learn how something works and to use it as you see fit.
The fact pagerank and nofollow even exist is what's creating these problems.
