Well, you do bring up some valid points, but the end result would have been a lot different had the mods been sanctioned by the developing team of the original game.

Of course, 1c couldn't blindly sanction something that included a hack of the game engine and that's why the next sim has to make provisions for mods. If the historically minded enthusiasts can add mods without the need to hack things, then it will not only satisfy the modding community but lessen the incentive to hack critical parts of the engine, like FM and DM. What the modders need will be open to use, the rest will be locked, so anyone who tampers with it can be safely called a cheater from that point on.
