The best would be to aggregate more than only alexa datas in a dmoz data base, would be real cool to have a full SEO report and some internal ranking based on all SEO factors.

This, and more. Google is just performing stats about everything it can, including, clicks in SERP, Google bar data and most likely adsense and google analytic data too.
For the last two, in theory they should not, but since we all know that a page can be indexed after it loaded an adsense (no link) and same with analytic and google bar actually, we have to believe that google is just no throwing away any data.
The fact that you can since few month, compare your site with other in google analytic goes down to the same point, endless resources for as much stats as possible
What would be the use of these hundred of thousands servers in google DCs throughout the world if not
