You're taking it farther than what I suggested. I had said:
a) Eva-00 manifests ATF, thus it requires a soul
The only thing that means is that there must be a soul behind Eva-00 that
displays ATF. Be it Rei with special abilities or a soul inside the core is
another question. That evidence only said a soul was required for ATF, and
because Eva-00 displays ATF, one way or another, it requires a soul.

What kind of evidence would that be?

And what is the contradiction here?:
Kaoru: Eva is made of the same body as me.
Because I am also born from Adam.
When the unit does not have a soul, I can unite.
The soul of this unit is shutting itself up now.

Why not? He only says "we'be both taken the lilim form to live on this
planet", no words about the origin of his or her body.

If one image is tagged as Rei-1 later, and the exact same image is used
before, why can't I say both images are Rei-1?

Yes, it would be great to know what the sidelines of episode 14 on that part
say about Rei. That's too much japanese for me to handle... Kanjis seems to
be unreadable to me, they're so small, so I can't redraw them on the IME
pad. I'll post the pic:

Without the RCB you would never know Asuka was american, right? Without the
RCB you wouldn't know Rei has one and the same soul, right? The thing is
that once the evidence exists, it becomes a fact. If it wasn't clear before,
it is now, with the evidence presented.
> > Oh yes it would.
It would also legitimize the renewal scripts, to see if there were no mess
ups. Also there could have other useful sidenotes.
