If this is the long-sought ‘missing link’, it wouldn’t really add that much strength to evolutionary theory (it’s farily strong already), but it might help shut some people up about how we haven’t found it.

CNN.com – Could Ethiopian skull be missing link? – Mar 25, 2006

The cranium dates to a time about which little is known — the transition from African Homo erectus to modern humans. The fossil record from Africa for this period is sparse and most of the specimens poorly dated, project archaeologists said.

The face and cranium of the fossil are recognizably different from those of modern humans, but bear unmistakable anatomical evidence that it belongs to the modern human’s ancestry, Sileshi said.
