I find it odd that the owner of an account made today has had significant time on BOTH of these systems. Even when credible reviewers such as the Wild Snow group has not. Also I cannot even begin to take in to account the review of someone who states they don't even own a touring boot.
I am inclined to agree with you in regards to the reliability of somebody with only 1 post, but honestly not owning a touring boot isn't a factor in the validity of somebody's review for me. I tour in a 130 Nordica Aggressor and know quite a few folks who tour regularly in non-touring boots. I honestly haven't found a touring boot that fits properly and feels solid on the descent. Besides, folks looking at these types of bindings aren't terribly concerned with weight, otherwise they'd be on Fritsches or Dynafits (and then have touring boots). Personally, I want a semi-burly binding and could care less if it's a few grams heavier, as long as it's reliable and provides a stable platform on the way down and in varying conditions (i.e. steep slopes populated with thick sludge or sun-cupped runnels).
One question which I cannot believe that nobody has posited is "How much do each of these bindings cost?" I would like to know how comparable they will be to one another. Will the Solly/Atomic binding be cheaper than The Duke and Dynafits? What about the Fischer/Tyrolia binding? I would like to know the impact on my wallet as well as how they perform.
Additionally, what's the ramp angle on these new bindings? Will they have negative ramp angle like the early Dukes? That has always been my gripe about the Dukes, personally.
