Just because he and/or Paulus didn't feel it was necessary doesn't mean they are right. They are close to it, it's the audience that has to sit and absorb and heard it and experience the words and how they match the visuals, etc. We are able to have just as right a feeling about it as they do.
Obviously they both were happy for the words not to change... that is what it is. Obviously if that worked for all who saw it the way they assumed it would, we wouldn't be discussing it.
