Has any one considered that light from the is being lensed through an obscuring source which could distort the signal???

Yes, and dark matter as another very speculative cause with light being slightly bent away from Kepler by a large but changing foreground mass or cloud if you will. But the argument against all of these I believe, is gravitational lensing from such a foreground mass should also cause an increase in brightness which we do not see here.
