Wow...all that reading was way over my head! I was hoping it was going to be something simple. Thanks guys for your input...appreciated as always!
Don't worry too much about "air" in the system, that would be easy to diagnose. Worry more about water in old brake fluid. Brake fluid is "hygroscopic" meaning it absorbs water. Water absorption lowers the boiling point of your clutch fluid. Given the location of the business end, and your experiencing slippage at high engine load predominantly, there's a chance old fluid can vaporised water molecules and pressurise the system, having the same effect as slightly pulling in the lever.
By the way, what colour was the old fluid?
