Most Spaniards and Italians would rather win the WC than any of those classics.
And you shouldn't underestimate the status of riding around in that jersey all year.
Paris-Roubaix is probably higher ranked among a lot of riders, Vlaanderen for the Vlamingen, MSR for some Italians, but for the rest I think the worlds is pretty much up there.
For me personally the Worlds RR is the most delightful day of cycling next to the Ronde van Vlaanderen each year.
