I don't think so. It ranks mainly because it is Wikipedia.
It is difficult to compare Wikipedia to any other domain because everyone believes there is a different set of rules for Wikipedia but let's say for the moment that isn't true.
But not sure about general internal linking influence through this update? Anyone?
All of mine for starters.
I wouldn't say I have "brand-oriented domains," nor brand-oriented customers but they are certainly on their way to being that. A couple of startups in 2008 broke the million dollar mark in 2012 doing the Wikipedia approach and PENGUIN 2.0 seemed to magically doubled sales conversions (we'll see as time progresses since 4 days isn't much of sampling rate).
Included in these developments was 50+ domains that got nailed by PENGUIN 1.0 and handed to me by another SEO that lost that link network value (to save his customers I got a bunch of worthless domains) but I recovered all of those domains in a couple of months.
Thus I don't buy that PENGUIN errors on websites tactics.
The solution to recover those was quite simple (for a link providing domain that is)... "delete everything, add original content and let it sit for 60 days"... problem solved!
I've had the opportunity to review and recover a volume of websites that got Manual Reviews... all of which passed by PENGUIN 1.0 with no problem whatsoever so when Matt Cutts suggested PENGUIN looked only at homepages... it made perfect sense that 30+ million links to deep pages easily avoided PENGUIN 1.0 (but couldn't avoid a manual review).
I do work with webspam. I've worked with it for a very long time and have disposed of over a million dollars in expired domains before PENGUIN came along... but I learned... and haven't lost any since 2011.
I don't have a single "keywordy" link from any of websites pointing to any of the others website and that sort of (IMHO) emulates organic links and all domain rank perfectly OK. All the keyword stuff is done internally which is perfectly acceptable to Google as that is simply navigational links and website architecture.
While it's only been 4 days... it makes perfect sense why brand domains do well... their link strategy isn't predominantly based on "get keyword phrase here".
I'm sure It's possible to find lots of example that brand domains are greasing someone palms for link anchors but as I already mention their "click here" style links provide a greater threshold to detection or much more granular cover than websites that don't have much of that brand oriented linkage.
I'm saying you don't need any keyword anchors whatsoever and you can rank extremely well and you'll avoid PENGUIN altogether as well.
