Like Peter, I'd like to know who is recommending these things.

For bonding new concrete to old, we used white glue as a bonding agent for years, but that's because concrete doesn't bond well to anything. Wetting (soaking) tiles before setting was common before the advent of thinset mortars when the bonding was done using dry Portland cement and water (Splash and Dash), but that soaking or wetting is something you specifically do not want when setting with thinset mortars.
