I don't see what's so insulting about it. You chose one approach to get the game working, somebody else chose another. Neither approach invalidates the other when the end result is trying to get a certain game to play.
I also don't see what's so "illegitimate" about the other chosen method versus yours, the game is working is it not? Mostly correct behavior as confirmed by people who've played it in the Galloping Ghost arcade, no? I'm not denigrating your work of course but I don't think it's fair to denigrate somebody else's work just because you have a distaste about how it was done.
