My granda used to tell me you should always try and look at things from a different perspective (which, taking him literally, prompted me to climb the rock garden to look at our house). Working for different companies gives you perspective on ideas that you won't get from working for just one company. The methodology du jour won't work in every situation, it takes perspective to know that. So I agree with point 4, "The 30 year old with more than 6 jobs in that time, probably has a lot more to offer", and a lot of that comes from perspective.
