....didn't Tsurumaki at one convention outright say "it was one of the Rei clones"?  Was that ever entirely sourced?

Naw. The idea that a soul can be manifest in multiple places at once has legitimate backing in various Eastern traditions. (though I will be the first to admit that said traditions don't seem to be that influential otherwise towards EVA's internal mythos) That Kyoko left a part of herself in the EVA and was no longer spiritually whole after the initial contact is reasonable. Whether Kyoko's spirit reasserted itself after her suicide is questionable. I tend to believe otherwise. 

That theory is nowhere near as bad as "I think Asuka's eye color changed! Therefore she's become a merged entity with Rei!"
