Very interesting information. It seems to me that the days of spinning and re-writing are coming to an end. It is simply creating duplicate content, with strategies to avoid detection.
There is one exception, though. The same information, say about online lead generation, can be of interest to a number of different audiences, such as people in different MLM companies. Then it is better for conversion and useful for the audience to re-write several versions of the article, with some changes the match the specific audience. In that case, you are not dumping several versions of the same content on the same audience, but you are reaching different audiences.
Unfortunately, you may still be facing duplicate content penalties, although targeting different market segments. I think the whole duplicate content discussion needs to address market segmentation.
