I think it rather elegantly covers all possible POV's.

You can consider it a total reboot or you can accept that while it creates a new universe free of any limitations, it couldn't have happened without the original.

And that original still exists.

I think it covers all bases and potential viewpoints allowing everyone to decide for themselves.
