It's so sad that J.R.R. Tolkien couldn't have lived to publish those materials himself.  The confusion over the parentage and descendants of Orodreth is only one of the inconsistencies that Christopher Tolkien has admitted to, and could have been avoided if his father had survived long enough to publish the works himself.  Still, one must wonder if he would have ever been satisfied, as he'd been working on the source material since World War I.
Having all of this spelled out is very useful.   Thanks for posting this information!
