Any decent director will know how to respect the source material, and if the director isn;t decent the film will suck regardless of how much Toho controls it. If anything Toho breathing down the director's back will hurt the film, like with GMK. Set some regulations, but give the dirctor freedom to play with the mythos.
I get what you are saying but can you blame them after what happened with Tri-Star? Last time Toho gave rules and they were completely ignored. This time Toho is enforcing them and using Banno as a watch dog to give them constant updates so they can change anything they disagree with before it's too late. It does slow down production, it does cause a lot of stress but if it means preventing someone from pulling a similar stunt that D&E pulled and giving us a Godzilla film that actually looks, feels and acts like Godzilla then I say the wait and stress will be worth it in the end. Eventually.
