Do the new style DM callipers have better tyre clearance than the skeleton ones?

Yes, supposedly. I got the new ones instead of the skeleton record dm. Oodles of clearance.

Never tried the skeleton record dm though.

I think they have more clearance than needed for a road bike. Shown below with 25mm tubular tires:

I can snap some pics with 27mm if you're interested.

There is no reference to front and back for either version Direct (non cut out version) or Campagnolo (cut out version)
Incorrect - they are different - Front and rear seat-stay should not be interchanged.
Rear under-BB mount can be interchanged with the front but don't forget to swap the brake shoe direction otherwise the blocks can be forcibly ejected by braking.
