Holmlid is indeed pushing his pet model everywhere in the same way, like you do (except that for you the fundamental theory changes each month, because you're just collecting the ideas of others).
But I don't think, that the formation of some special phase of hydrogen is necessary and it could be even process competing the cold fusion, once we admit that the cold fusion runs as a result of collisions of nickel and hydrogen nuclei (proton capture leading to copper or beryllium at the case of lithium presence) - not hydrogen nuclei itself. The proton capture has been routinely observed during electrolysis of alkali-metal carbonate solutions at nickel cathode, during which the potassium, strontium or barium ions gets formed. Such a mechanism disfavors the role of dense hydrogen formation, because the leading step will be the reaction of proton with metal nuclei, not with another proton. So that the formation of larger islands of dense hydrogen would inhibit the fusion instead of promote, because the fusion couldn't run inside these islands.
We still don't know, what gets really primarily formed inside the ECat: helium or copper. Once the copper would be formed primarily, then the proton-nickel capture would be leading step of cold fusion and the dense hydrogen phase would have no meaning there, on the contrary - the islands of dense hydrogen would be inert to fusion because the cold fusion could run only at the nickel and hydrogen interface.
Another problem with dense hydrogen concept is the Occam razor principle: OK, so it's present during cold fusion - but what it does really explain? How it could help the cold fusion? Does the presence of dense hydrogen during cold fusion lead into some testable predictions? In this moment I can see none - except that it disfavors all proton capture based mechanisms (which were already proven experimentally). In construction of physical theories a simple rule exists: "hypotheses non fingo" (don't invent hypothesis, if you don't have to).
Until you have no practical usage for some concept, don't use it.
