I suspect one reason for the wiggle is that it's unlikely to collide with the site's native styling.

I actually think a better effect would be oscillating between growing and shrinking. Might not look right with links embedded in a paragraph, though.

Exactly, wiggling works well even for links that look like buttons, among other styles of links.

I played with growing and shrinking, but it looks bad because the text loses resolution as it becomes bigger (at least using CSS3 transforms).
