I also think MSN search will choose yahoo approach i.e paid listings prominent above the fold natural results below the fold so will not matter how good SEO if you don't pay for competitive terms you won't show .
That will then be 3 out of 4 with big G the only player with some chance of SEO being worth while and being seen for competitive terms .
As PPC continues to grow less and less terms will be available for natural results
SEO will be good for picking up the stuff no one else wants
