Here's a thought I had on this not long ago (though I doubt if there's any way to prove it one way or the other): perhaps Yui somehow herded Lilith's soul into Rei 1. Everything else seems to be going according to Yui's plan, why not this as well? Do you think you could come up with a justification for this theory? For some reason I find it strangly appealing; perhaps because it attributes to Yui an occurence that proved vital to the realization of her plans.
