That's one way of looking at it. And, admittedly, my first thought as well.
Or you could see it as the "giving hand" attempting to hedge its bets when the donation was made in the first place.
Either way, does it invalidate any of what @fiatjaf pointed out? (Serious question, btw.)
Maybe it's just part of a healthy debate.
I think no. It doesn't. But to me it sounds like nitpicking.
