Not sure what different result might be expected.
I have an EMD with 0 dofollow non-spam [scraper] links I can find [nope, I never requested a single link to it -- the only one I know of that was "built" is from a Twitter account that doesn't tweet].
It ranks number 1 for multiple queries and has for years, so I expected the EMD itself would have more of an impact, but the testing and results from CaptainSalad2 compared to where the site I'm referring to ranks seems to indicate there's a bit more to the algo than either EMDs or links.
I do prefer to not speculate at what the difference is right now, because there are a number of things I think it could be, but I'll definitely give it some thought and I've recently launched other EMDs and PMDs I'll be watching carefully since I don't intend to build links to any of them unless I have to for some reason.
