I've been in other campaigns where we had to essentially write the rules because the campaign had out-lived the rule-set that it originated from.
Every time we'd have a corner of it set, someone would come along and upset the apple cart, and we'd be left scrambling trying to figure out how our kit-bashed abomination would work for months at a time, sometimes even years.
I do not envy the work ahead of the Paizo staff, even with the help of volunteers, and the very least we can do is cut them a little bit of slack -- trust me, a careful reasoned and supported-by-documentation answer is far preferable to some knee-jerk off-the-cuff response.
Knee-jerk off-the-cuff responses are the fuel that I run on. Go read a book or take a walk, and take that reasonable attitude with you.
