I don't believe so. While checking up on my own site, I noticed a very recent addition to the Yahoo listings under Sports - Cycling - Cyclists where the listed site was in fact a sub-page within a larger domain.
Perhaps their policies vary from one category to another, but I do not believe there is any general policy of the rumored nature.
