One thing I didn't see mentioned is that the Yahoo directory is sometimes used by some to seed their lists of sites. A listing in Yahoo can lead to links elsewhere.
I agree with Ken that a listing in Yahoo or DMOZ won't protect against algorithm changes. And without question neither will put a site in the top ten. To be fair, no single action or activity will do either. But if you're going to cover your bases in ticking off all the positive things you can do to help promote your site, then submitting to Yahoo still makes sense.
