Let's put this in terms we can all understand.

A bug exists. We're arguing about whether we should implement a workaround or force a fix at the problem source.

As good engineers some are arguing that the workaround is stupid and the problem should be patched at its source.

As good engineers some are arguing that the problem source is an intractable vendor whose source code we don't have access to, and as such it's better to implement a workaround then just leave our users with the problem.

Nobody here is being evil, we just disagree about where to patch the problem.

Well, not exactly. Some are arguing that there isn't a problem. Others are arguing that there's a better way to solve the problem, but aren't actually doing any of that work. And some have come up with an approach that the former groups don't like, but which is so far the only approach that's achieved anything. We can discount the first group, but if the second group wants to be taken seriously then they should commit to demonstrating a better solution.
