Well, it's an interesting theory, and it seems plausible to a lay person (me).
But I wonder if they've read the unpublished recombination paper that rebutts their previous and current conclusions:
Murine leukemia viruses (MuLV) and Xenotropic MuLV-related viruses exhibit inter-tropic complex recombination patterns
Mattia C F Prosperi , William M Switzer, Walid Heneine and Marco Salemi

Unpublished abstract presented to the '15th International Conference on Human Retroviruses: HTLV and Related Viruses'
Retrovirology 2011, 8(Suppl 1):A235doi:10.1186/1742-4690-8-S1-A235
"Given the evidence of inter-tropic recombination in MuLV, detection and classification of recombination in XMRV using different MuLV tropism prototypes should be interpreted with caution ... These results suggest that identification of parental strains of the potential recombinants is difficult and that recombination in the highly genetically related MuLV have been occurring for some time."
