To me, retaining all the previous info (rankings, proportions) and gaining new info (value in context of league scoring) essentially means replacement, but I'm not preventing anyone from using raw data.

I agree that there's a whole host of other factors yet to be factored in. How important those factors are and how they can be analyzed and quantified properly are what we should be discussing. Some of those will either be quite difficult to quantify (but may be captured in the "error" portion of certain models and/or by other variables) or will basically be inconsequential (most ignore aerodynamics when describing a large boulder's path down a hill). I think most of the important variables can be defined and quantified to a large degree, and hopefully that will improve the accuracy of adjusted stats for the "predictive" purposes to which you've alluded.
