Design review for EMI is a good to step to have in these complex designs. Yes the PCB layout makes lot of difference. Thanks to advancement in EDA tools, you can do a trial run on the layout before releasing the gerbers for PCB manufacturing.

Looks like the second (improved) layout made space for additional magnetics (L100) .. but wasn't installed (instead a 100 ohm and a smt inductor/ ferrite bead was installed)

So the design is no longer the same size... (?) a compromise that many of us cannot obtain when faced with these problems...that helped get that 3x spacing improvement.

I wonder how many designs had a primary filter added and subseqently passed EMI only because components had to be moved to make room for the filter...
