Is duplicate content even a Panda issue?
Google's SERP's are positively heaving with dupe content. Syndicated, auto-generated, you name it!
Panda is just a smokescreen under which the SERP's can be skewed in favour of improved adwords clickthru whilst suppressing websites on an upward curve of reduced bounce rate, increasing pageviews and better conversion.
I cannot understand why you would apply a quality factor to an entire website. Would it not make more sense to look at how an individual page hangs within a hierarchy of pages that link to it, and to which it links, in order to determine true quality?
