Hi Michael,
Your post was interesting and helpful.
You also mentioned,"Entropy has left the domain of physics and is better understood in terms of information theory."

I came across the following.
Encylopedia of Energy Science
entropy...a measure of the amount of thermal energy which can not be converted into external energy. In other words it is a measure of the amount of bound energy in a system. It is not though equal to the bound energy. Entropy is a number that can be multiplied by the ambient temperature or temperament of Reservoir T0 to obtain the bound energy.
