Yes but the problem seems to be that some SEOs are unaware that they should be dealing with Dmoz rather than a multitude of web directories that use Dmoz as a feed. Admittedly some of Dmoz is a bit of a wasteland now with no editors covering topics. If they could get Dmoz to deal with the link, then they wouldn't have to bother all those webmasters.
Perhaps getting Dmoz to implement a 410 (content gone) approach with their checker might solve that problem and automate the removal of sites from the directory.
