A VERY interesting question. I have asked similar questions on this issue and come up with similar conclusions.
The idea of Greys as an alien race surfaced in the late 1800's in a article by H.G.Wells titled "Man of the Year Million".
The science fiction writer H.G. Wells, in the article "Man of the Year Million" in 1893, describes humanity transformed into a race of
gray-skinned beings, stunted and with big heads.
We do ourselves no favor if we ignore this pattern also. Wells wrote another book soon thereafter and over the next few decades the idea lay at a
very low level of public awareness. Here is an article
I have read since your OP.
As an idea culled from a century old novel written by a novelist who later gained fame as a very early science fiction author, greys need to be at
least considered in the manner you suggest in your OP or at least what I think you suggested. Though it's modern telling began just a hundred years
ago the grey story appears to have grown into a robust belief system based only a lot of conjecture and interpretation. Why?
Because that is all some of us have. Maybe that's all any of us has.
What I know about it I got from the public box.
I don't believe and I don't discount either.
I take it as t is for me, a story to make what I will with it.
And with that, a little poem.
I've never seen a skinny grey or
Or anyone thats seen one
But I can tell you anyway.
I'd rather see than be one.
(twisted from a old poem my mother used to tell me.)
