Your sarcasm is noted, but let's be real: "Defying Gravity" is less of a traditional first act closer and more of an eleven o'clock number. It is not only by far the most famous song from the show, it is one of the most famous songs on Broadway from the past two decades. They are absolutely right that you can't follow up "Defying Gravity" with a scene or a song, and there are of course many examples of movie musicals that struggle to maintain cinematic momentum moving from a particularly stirring, emotional high point Act 1 finale. And also, at no point does Schwartz make the kind of heavy handed claim you're satirizing, so your sarcasm just reads as nasty, bitter, and overblown.
