4. Wouldn't the important question about the similarity of birth dates...
...be that they are roughly three days after the winter solstice, regardless of crazy calendar system changes, or at least that the dates were originally chosen to correspond to dates roughly three days after the winter solstice, even if calendar inaccuracies or politics later push the dates around?

I'm not saying that I know that taking such things into account makes the Horus and Jesus legends match when it comes to birth dates, just that I think arguing purely on the basic of changing calendar conventions and nomenclature might be missing the point.
