Could this be the end of PR! (For public/webmasters anyway)
Speaking for myself only, the end of PR would not be a bad thing at all. I know there are many that live by PR, but a small, non-commercial site like mine exists solely on content (all other things being equal). Links will always rule with good anchor text, but I don't need to see that green bar to tell me when I've come across a good web site, nor do the users. They are interested in good SERPS only - most users don't even know what the toolbar is.
As for TPR, I would expect Google first to drop it from the newest Toolbar version, then to make old versions grey, in that order.
Since TPR seems still to be displayed in the newest Toolbar version I expect the display of TPR to stay.
How else can I determine that linking to a site will not cause me harm? (a bit of a rhetorical question)
i think that the problem are the new IPs, which are added in every google data center at the moment.
each data center gets the IPs 96-99 and/or 98-99.
guys who see pr are connected to the mc data center which still send pr values... like here [www-mc.google.com]
just my 5 cents.
