That's not the password reuse I'm referring to.

Most users will use the same password on multiple systems. If system A has a more frequent password refresh period than system B, after that first refresh period they will be different from each other unless the user explicitly changes system B at the same time. However, most users will only change a password because they're prompted to, not because they had to for a different system, and they just end up tracking more passwords (again, why I advocate password managers).

That's cool and great for dev work; but that viewpoint does not work for security modelling. Security models are built on people, which are more effectively tracked by statistical plotting than by binary behavior models.
