: It may be expecting the final message of the S'pht'Kr which some have
Ah, I forgot about that plot point.
: It is also my firm belief that it is not the Durandal-S'pht entity as that
I think S'pht-Durandal do speak cryptically at least in Strange Aeons when they are first reborn. Also, there is apparently a terminal somewhere in You Think You're Big Time where there's also some cryptic style text from S'pht-Durandal.
But then after that they do speak in a much more straightforward way.
: It is my firm belief that the green text is a mistake (yes lots of those in
I personally prefer to avoid chalking things up to "it was a mistake by the devs". It's too easy to do that for too many things in Infinity and it doesn't lead to any better understanding of what's going on.
I at least don't think that the text in Ne Cede Malis and Carroll Street Station are meant to match. They are written in very different styles. The Ne Cede text is written in third person and clearly directed at the player/main character and has a detached quality that feels more like a narrator. Whereas the text in Carroll Street is written in first person and seems directed inward; it seems much more like an actual character engaging in a monologue or soliloquy.
If the text was meant to be white and meant to be Thoth it might give an alternate reading combined with the reminder about the last message of the S'pht'kr. From this perspective Durandal dies permanently (somehow) and Thoth tries to take over the fight against the Pfhor, but without the 11th clan message he can't summon the S'pht'kr. But then that would bring into question, why would the Pfhor fire the tri xeem, and was the trih xeem even fired?
Ultimately the problem is that things arbitrarily change in different timelines. For example, in Chapter 4 there's no indication that the 11th clan's message has been found, and yet S'pht-Durandal are still able to summon K'lia.
