I've been thinking that with a change as massive as Panda, the full infrastructure for it may not yet be integrated into Caffeine's normal update routine. That's not exactly the same thing as "capacity".
I just double-checked the quote and discovered that the word "capacity" was my interpretation, and not what Amit Singal actually said, which was:
In addition, this change also goes deeper into the "long tail" of low-quality websites to return higher-quality results where the algorithm might not have been able to make an assessment before.
I agree that it seems peculiar for Google spokespeople to suggest all manner of changes and then apparently not re-evaluate sites that have made extensive changes. This is a sign to me that there currently is some limitation on rapid re-evaluation.
