Thanks, that was quite helpful. It also led me to the discovery that 
exactly the same thing was being discussed on *this* list just under 8 
years ago:

In summary, all the sources seem to suggest that the old 7-parameter 
transformation given in the Grids & Datums column was simply inaccurate 
and has been recalculated more accurately since it was originally 
publicised. I'm still curious as to the subtle difference between the 
3-parameter transformation given in the column and that that is now 
generally accepted, but in my mind anyway things are a lot clearer -
