What I absolutely can't reconcile with the shutter shock hypothesis is my observation that the E-P5's image blurring can be reduced by using the touchscreen. The camera is the same, the person holding it is the same, all that's changed is the release mechanism.

Can't see why the observation you made should be difficult to reconcile with the shutter-shock hypothesis. That the effect of shutter-shock depends on how you hold the camera was one of the very first observations made and documented when the phenomenon started to be intensely discussed on this forum about a year ago, following the release of the E-M5. And you hold the camera differently when you release via the touch screen than when you release via the shutter button, don't you? So you have in fact two factors here that you vary simultaneously, not a single one: Release mechanism and the way you hold the camera.
