Just this morning we had an example of what concerns me about this update as I think it relates to Penguin. A well respected site that deals with our niche wrote an article recommending one of our articles and our site a whole. This was 100% natural, not bought or traded for. But when they linked to our site they used "Baby-Blue-Widgets.com" as the anchor.
This should be a quality link to our site and in theory a boost, but since they used our keyword URL as the link text might it actually be a negative? Do I write to the site nice enough to recommend our site and ask them to change the link text? That seems a little unappreciative. Even if I did ask them to change the anchor text, what would I ask them to change the text to? Our site is only about baby blue widgets.
