For me, ST09 used contrivances pretty much as well as Star Trek in general has ever done (and like most times, it's usually done for the needs of the plot of the moment, and I would probably rather in this instance have the dramatic impetus and moment of Amanda's death in the film than anal attention to previous transporter systems) so while I'm aware we all pick and choose which contrivances 'bother' us, it's not something I'm going to find a major problem with.
