I'm surprised that with the wrap Ellis has been getting (deservedly) that only one other person has voted for him. I found Ellis' arc on FF much better than the first and, if memory serves, he's already explained a couple of the problems. So just let him explain the rest too.
Why not? President Thor isn't over. Who knows what's going to happen at the end of that? Plus, we already know that in Frightful, Doom doesn't have hooves. Maybe the timeline changes, and that's one of the changes.
