They are trying to lay out evidence from the text, that Joseph didn't imagine it all on the spot. He read/memorized from a written document.
This basically supports the theory laid out on Mormonleaks. There was a group of authors, and Oliver was in on it. For the majority of time while they were unobserved, Joseph would have just been reading out the text to produce the printer's copy in Oliver's handwriting and maintain the facade.
The periods of peering into his hat and memorizing blocks of text were for the benefit of the dupes they were scamming.
He would not have reproduced memorized text perfectly word for word, which is why he couldn't reproduce the lost 116 pages. And the non-need to memorize after Oliver arrived explains why the work accelerated massively when Oliver replaced Martin, Emma, David, and Reuben. They would only have needed to put on a hat-show for visitors now and then.
It all falls apart because moderns are aghast at the thought of the hat-rock procedure, and because we get told he read from the plates.
If you read http://mormonleaks.com/
then read the apologists, it is as plain as your nose that apologist 'evidence' supports the multiple authorship theory proposed by Craig C and Uncle Dale (and others) much better than the angel/plates/magic theory.
The new Mormonleaks episode is due about now too! Waiting on tenterhooks.
