It makes John Williams seem more human and relatable to me. He's professional and courteous but at the same time he has standards for how his work is presented (if only he'd have the same amount of scrutiny for the trailer renditions of his music)

The situation also led to the Powell/Williams collaboration; one of the most interesting collaborations in film score history.
