The Conversions by keyword position report is really useful. It confirms what I guess most people have suspected all along, i.e. if you want great conversion, you want the T1 position top across the page. If T1 is not available, you want position 1, i.e. top in the right hand column. These positions outshine everything else in terms of conversions. At least for the 20+ top keywords that I just checked.
Google will be richer still, when everybody starts fighting for the T1:s. Apart from high relevancy, they require big budget and big bids.

Can Google Analytics be used for affiliate programs too?.

Interesting stuff. My initial investigating suggests the following:
For the widgets I sell my keywords perform best at T3 and 1 in terms of visitors. In terms of total conversions my best position seems to be 3.
That said there seems to be wide variations across keywords.

Yes - but you will be missing conversion data, which is the most important metric IMO.

But you still can't get a report which shows a double breakdown of your traffic sources for goods sold, for example:
Item Sold: Dog food
-- dog food
-- discount dog food
-- dog food
-- healthy dog food
