Was checking other pages on my site which had all incremented by 1 then after a few pages went back to homepage - hey the PR was back to 4 and all pages I had just checked lost the 1...

Do you think that we will see a dance? I'm hoping that some of my keyword phrases that have been slowly slipping in the serps will start to gain ground again.
I don't think an update is due anytime very soon, but if we are pushing out new visible links/external PR data, then I'm happy for the folks who like to check on that. :) I hadn't been following the directory updates as closely, but I've read a couple posts where someone said that they'd seen updates related to the directory too..
- Does this mean that whatever people are seeing at the specified IP address, it's not going to go to the Google production databases and visible results?
- Is Google doing away with the visible links and PR?
- If visible links and PR is done away with, doesn't that make the toolbar somewhat less useful?
This is what happened for this page with the current update:
1 - The backlinks to this page dropped from 331 to 208.
2 - The PR of this page dropped from 6 to 5.
3 - The ranking in the SERPS for the primary keyword rose from #34 to #4 out of 3.6 million results and traffic to the page has tripled.
I'm happy with #3 of course, but I'm at a loss to explain it given the loss of backlinks and PR. Any ideas?
