...?

Again, you said:

"The host Old Kingdom pyramids at Saqqara date to ca 2300 BCE, but evidence suggests that the garbled Texts were added much later in the Middle Kingdom by bumbling copyists …"

Those "later" copyists would have been the people of the 5th-6th Dynasties, not intrusive bumblers from the MK as you suggest. The PT is not a book or single narrative, but a disparate collection of spells, hymns, and formulae, some from earlier dynasties which is what you are reffering to. The bulk of the PT, however, was conceived and written in the 5th-6th Dynasties and regardless all were put in their place at this time and not added later in the MK.
