Perhaps it was the overwhelming quality signal the site sent by using the keyword 40+ times on their home page.
I'm seeing more and more tightly woven sites that repeat the keyword 50+ times on all pages of a site ranking very highly. Its clearly keyword stuffing but Cutts now claims it is not if the keywords relate to the subject. Then again he was the one who brought up the word overoptimization. To me it’s also a signal they may have problems with manual reviewers and they’re trying to dumb it down for interpretation.
