Spoke with a friend about this who knows his Tolkien well (I'm very thankful to have a couple of friends who I can joke "I'm a Maglor restorationist" and they get it lol). He said he prefers it as it is in the published Silmarillion, where there are a few small hints to give enough hope for an eventual happy ending but it is kept a little hazy and obscured. Don't think I entirely agree but it was an interesting perspective.
