A question, just out of general curiosity: if JMS had gone ahead with his planned way of undoing the marriage, where he would retcon things way back during Amazing #ninetysomething in such a way that it would undo the death of Harry, Gwen, Peter's relationship with Felicia, with MJ, the marriage and everything that's happened since 1971, would you still say you have this newfound respect for him?

Except that's not how JMS explained it. He said it would only specifically undo the marriage and the Gwen/Norman babies and everything else would be left up to future creators to decide if it stays in continuity or not.

Of course, we'll never see his plan in a book, so we don't know how good it actually is. But I think it's better just on the basis of it having some sort of explanation, other than "It's magic!"
