IMO differences in interpretation really involve different understandings of what one sees in the God Plane. For example is the largest mountain in the Storm Realm KeroFin or Top of the World? Changes in the myth such that a different person gets killed are really different myths rather than interpretations. They occur but the result of the myth is different. Hence my doubts that the Tarshites can so change the basic myth to fit their cultural purposes.
