I still would like to get an estimate of how long I might expect a top rate battery of this type to hold a charge while not in the camera.

Top rate or bottom of the barrel doesn't matter. All Li-Ion batteries should retain most of their charge for many months when out of the camera. It's still wise whether you use them or not, to put them back in the charger at least every 6 months, otherwise they may no longer be able to take a charge. NiMH batteries used to be very poor for holding their charge for long periods, but the new record holders are the "pre-charged" NiMH batteries. Sanyo's eneloop batteries are one example of these, and they can retain most of their capacity for 3 years.
