Google Effect Of Domain Name Change Of Ownership

This morning I wrote Does Change of Domain Name Ownership Hurt Rankings? a question that has been bugging Danny and myself since I wrote Google Effect Of Domain Name Expiration & Change Of Ownership. Well, I now have some webmaster feedback on this that claims that domain name change of ownership, by itself, appears to not have an affect on your rankings.

Not only that, but I have not heard from Danny that his traffic is suffering here since Search Engine Watch changed (1) ownership of domain from Jupiter to Incisive and (2) Search Engine Watch switched servers. Maybe when Danny gets back, he can chime in?
