@robzilla: Do you really trust in Google to weed out bad backlinks? Why did they give us the disavow-tool...
Well, I certainly don't see it as my job to weed out any poor backlinks that I did not acquire myself. Even if I did acquire them myself, however, I don't think I would tell Google about them :-) I would try to remove them myself, and focus on getting better quality links instead, so that they may push the scale back toward the green zone, as it were.
Like Google says, "in most cases, [we] can assess which links to trust without additional guidance, so most normal or typical sites will not need to use this tool." In other words, you'd need a pretty horrific backlink profile to even consider using the tool.
