Our main site is very much niche. It attained PR 6 for a short while, but is now back to a 5. This seems to be high enough to guarantee frequent crawling.
I do not focus a lot on PR. I do try to get links from relevant sites, though that effort is more to increase traffic than to increase PR.
I know that if you put in some pretty obscure topics within my niche, I usually am in the top 5 90% of the time.

Why are you worried about it?
More importantly, what's your position in the SERPS?
You got that right ... I have one site that bounces between PR3 and PR4 and another that's held steady at PR8 for over a year now. The PR4 site is in the top 3 for every keyword I ever wanted it to be. The PR8 site can hardly ever be found on the relevant keywords.
I wonder how many "PR Dummies" (Translation: those obsessed with PageRank) will think that pr10.com site is for real :)
We have discussed this several times, PR is not the most important factor for ranking but a very important factor nevertheless.
Actually this is enough. I get a nice crawl everyday and most pages are in google 48 hours after they are added.
Ranking is what counts more for us and we are listed not that bad (can be better of course).
The problem with our niche is that adwords is costs a couple USD per click :(
