"One look at the source code of adobe.com [adobe.com] ought to answer your question"
You assume that Adobe.com is generated from Dreamweaver. Could be generated on a text editor by an HTML wizard.
"Looking at the source code behind the WYISWYG Web Builder's own site, I'd be surprised if anyone can hold their breath long enough to identify (let alone fix) that tangled mess"
Again, why? What needs fixing? Where is it broken? Who, besides you, gives a cr*p what the code looks like as long as the parties involved are happy with the appearance and performance?
OK, using your own criticism of WWB's site (http://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com/), What needs fixing? Where is it broken?
"I am merely asking for evidence that DW (and, if you like, WWB) can be and are used to generate clean, efficient code "
And, who defines "clean" and "efficient"? Is there an industry standard like K&R is to the C language?
