I think that's one of the reasons I've been willing to cut the author some slack and defend the series over the past few months during the mass hype backlash, he was pretty straightforward with his acknowledgements of issues and inconsistencies in the story.

And yes, the entire SAO arc is being rewritten under the Banner of "SAO Progressive." It will go floor by floor I believe with the first volume out in 3 days or so. Vol. 1 covers Floors 1-3 If I recall.

So people can truly consider the SAO anime to be literally...SAO Abridged.
