Just finished reading the entire thread. Any new info from Google or updates related to the original question?
Google seems to have assumed responsibility for user experience not only on the landing pages but also for any other pages on the site with the Panda update. (Any weak pages can get a site Pandalized, not just weak landing pages.) So for that reason it seems the noindex advice they offer is at odds with their goal of sitewide quality.
