The EMD update is a periodic update in the same respect as the Penguin & Panda filters. So, you should expect additional changes in the future.

I've noticed that the EMD bonus is greatly diminished for the net/org EMDs. The dot coms seem to be less effected. Another thing is that the authority of the backlinks matter.
