Yes, I feel it as a sort of artificial or exaggerated problem.

I don't think the clarification changed anything in the spirit of the
Social Contract.  E.g. while the old SC spoke about "software" and not
"works", a lot of non-free documents was still placed in non-free and
not main.  I think the sarge related SC/DFSG problems would demand the
same attention under the old SC, despite solution of some of them could
be abused by focusing on the exact wording of the SC.  Taking the
wording literally and "solving" the problems by postponing or reverting
the SC changes looks like an ugly hack to me.

It's amazing how much better you feel once you've given up hope.
