As BuckWorks stated above, if the page is relevant and you can see there is potential, it could be a good choice for you.
Sometimes getting in a newer directory first is worth a small investment because in the long term it could preform very well as far as PR and traffic. A little risk is ok as long as it's not an irrelevant mess of a directory - IMO ;)
If you buy a link that is relevant to what your site offers, is not Run-of-site, and could possibly drive traffic - you're probably okay. Thnk of it somewhat like buying a listing in a directory. In fact, we dont even call it "linkbuilding" anymore - we call it "trafficbuilding" instead.
It's definitely a thin line and it's a blurry one at that.
