Oh well, Gary
You might as well cross out "Roko Camaj" from your foursome, as I'll presently demonstrate that he was but an umpteenth media-enrolled actor. Yes, I believe the man who played the "Roko Camaj" character for FOX TV's cameras prior to 9/11 may well be alive and well today - living it out in a lush Albanian mansion (under some 'intelligence' protection program) - and I understand now why you chose him as an example of a different type of vicsim. So thanks for the tip! (I wonder how many times I have to reiterate that I am OPEN to the idea of different ways of vicsim creation. All I'm saying is that the VAST majority of 9/11 vicsims were entirely made up by digital means.)
Here is "Roko Camaj, the merry WTC window-washer" stating on camera that he is (in the year 2000) 69 years old:

The actor playing "Roko Camaj" obviously just fucked up his line - big time. He was supposed to say "59 years old", since every single 9/11 memorial now has him "dead at 60 years of age ".

To be sure, I have heard of people lying about their age - but not by ADDING 10 years to themselves!
To make matters worse, here is a recent (October 2011) goofy FOX NEWS article 'corroborating' their Albanian actor's fuck up:
On a side note, let me just have a short rant about the above-linked video, featuring "Roko" and his son "Vincent": I think it is high time for everyone to educate themselves to recognize obviously stage-managed news media productions. It might sound presumptuous for me to say this, but nowadays it takes me only a few seconds to sniff out the phoniness of such corny productions. "Vincent's" facial expressions, head noddings and general demeanor is a dead giveaway of someone coached in what I would call 'persuasive lying techniques' (not something you'd expect from the son of an Albanian window washer) - and sorry for what may sound like a 'racist' thought. No, I am NO racist - I am only saying that the casting agents of these productions SUCK to High Heaven! I believe the media people we see on TV - anchors, reporters, foreign (war) correspondents and such - are ALL coached with those foxy speech techniques.Camaj loved his job, but on that beautiful day he was thinking about the future. "I hope to retire in 2-3 years and go and stay home. I'm getting old I'm a grandpa. I am very happy because it's time. [I’m] 69 years old it's time to see the grandchildren", he said with a smile.

So, Roko my friend! Were you 69 or 59 back in the year 2000? Can you remember ?
