Well the purists would scoff at creating url and click here type links to get out of Pengiun but until they come up with a better idea it is worth a shot.
I agree this would be my way forward but it's only a temporary solution IMO. Bottom line is regardless of the anchor text, the links aren't being created naturally and it is only a matter of time before even those get discarded. You'd have to bet that Google are trying to move away from any signal that can be manipulated.
