Another possibility is that it is not so much the value of new incoming links that was depreciated, but the significance of link anchors. It used to be pretty easy to shape relevance by links anchors, but it seems no longer to be the case. So now you build links, and you don't see the impact you expected - but that's not the link's value that changed it's the anchor significance. Or may be both factors are in play.
