what are the factors (other than how many GB of physical memory is allotted to SQL server) that influence how old info this query can bring back:

select *
FROM sys.dm_exec_query_stats qs
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_sql_text(qs.sql_handle) qt
CROSS APPLY sys.dm_exec_query_plan(qs.plan_handle) qp

I believe besides that you need to look at Last SQL Server restart and Max/Min memory settings in SQL to determine oldest entry available via DVMs.
Also if a sp_recompile or a huge query flushed the plan(s) from cache then its also posible to not be retrieved by above query:

ms-help://MS.SQLCC.v10/MS.SQLSVR.v10.en/s10de_6tsql/html/eb7b58b8-3508-4114-97c2-d877bcb12964.htm

"Returns aggregate performance statistics for cached query plans. The view contains one row per query statement within the cached plan, and the lifetime of the rows are tied to the plan itself. When a plan is removed from the cache, the corresponding rows are eliminated from this view."
