A New Ethics?
Lately, I've observed (more than just once or twice) the letter of the law being waived (in cases 1 and 2) in top bracket regionals by advanced or expert players. Kind of like -- "hey, we're not playing in the Spingold."
ACBL announces new director of field operations
Well, he seems to be the current CEO's kind of guy. Perhaps he sees the lack of bridge experience as not a problem
Orlando - The ACBL Reacts!
Part of the problem is who are the nationals for? In today's bridge world, I assume the ACBL wants to appeal to all, within and beyond the NA organization. In olden days, they were often contrived to reflect the desires of a limited view -- I forget the details but ...

What am I missing?
I haven't seen any commentary but this isn't a club match point game. Presumably, most souths visualize a small slam if not an easy grand to bid. Who knows/wants to guess how many spades East holds?
Defence to DBL of 1NT showing a single-suiter (or similar)
If 2C is Landy you probably don't want to play system on. A number of counter-defenses exist. If 2D shows a major, Jeff Lehman's suggestion can be appropriate. Other counters can of course be deployed.
