I'm of the belief that a link on even a PR0 page has considerable trust value if your link is on the page for a long time, several years etc. Trustrank and Pagerank may not be one and the same.
There are literally millions of websites with well written and relevant content that have very low page rank. Provided these sites attract visitors that would be directly interested in your website, they make for excellent inbound (or reciprocal) link candidates.

The search engine traffic dwarfs the traffic from links but that foundation of quality traffic which will not vanish at the whim of Google is worth getting and holding on to.
It's useless to have 1000 visitors from a PR5 website that bounce from your website and convert only 10.
But great to have 100 visitors from a PR0 website and have 50 conversions.
