In another case, did not the killers of Jamie Bulger successfully argue that publication of their adult identities (i.e. photos of them) lead to them being attacked and thus breach their right to life under Article 2? Or did I dream that?

Correct. The issue was that the press wanted to publish updated details of Venables and Thomson; the judge decided that Article 2 (right to life) trumped Article 10 (free press related matters). The judgment did not consider A.8 (which was in the two cases in the blog).
