Perhaps I'm treading old ground here, but....
Given Paizo's involvement with organized play, it is simply not credible to believe that, over the entire time, that Paizo saw zero Alchemists being played, using Quick Alchemy to create Elixirs/Mutagens/Tools/Poisons, have their durations last more than the one turn, even if consumed, and not say something if that were the incorrect way to use them.
Especially given the amount of errata published concerning the Alchemist class that is already in existence.
While I agree completely that the OP's reading doesn't hold up, I dont think this logic really holds well. Organized Play sessions are run by GMs running the game to their best understanding of the rules of the system. There's no special qualification involved, and not generally anyone from Paizo checking in to make sure rules were handled correctly. Rules mistakes being made in organized play happens as much as in home games, and without much more chance of it turning into an errata.
