My take: this is easier said than done.

Any attempt by Google to cut down on 'fluff' needs to take into account NICHE

Recipe content, for example, is notorious for fluff.

Plus, it appears this can easily be worked around using Q+A type headings that attack related sub-topics

Well, i don't think there is any viable solution to this. Machine can't understand text the same way humans do, at least not for now.

They always choose 5000-word articles over 500-word articles so yeah, they like overly detailed/fluff content.
