R2-D2, Secret Agent Droid?

A fellow named Keith Martin has posted an interesting retcon article, A New Sith, or Revenge of the Hope, in which he retcons Star Wars: A New Hope given what we've now seen in Star Wars: Revenge of the SIth:

If we accept all the Star Wars films as the same canon, then a lot that happens in the original films has to be reinterpreted in the light of the prequels. As we now know, the rebel Alliance was founded by Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bail Organa. What can readily be deduced is that their first recruit, who soon became their top field agent, was R2-D2...

It's a fascinating new perspective on the film, to say the least...
