Why would anything about a reincarnated character's new form feel right to that character? He or she has a lifetime of experience in a different form and suddenly finds himself or herself in a different form, permanently. Gender is about the only thing that a reincarnated character can change cheaply, easily, and painlessly -- that character pretty much has to learn to accept all other physical changes.
I would be extremely interested to know where you got that interpretation out of the spell. I read it as getting a new body and (possibly) keeping your old memories. If I woke up and had webbed feet and gills, or fates forbid all new limbs, I think it would feel quite unnatural considering that until just that minute I did not have those extra appendages.
And no where in the Druid code does it say that you have to let someone die, which is effectively what you're saying. Revere nature does not automatically mean you can't bring someone back to life, it just means that you revere nature - so no laying waste to forests and fields, or salting the earth, or exploiting creatures for the fur trade.
