You’re just shifting the problem to a more noticeable spot, not fixing it. Moving it requires having support beneath. It might even have to be a completely new structure if the existing one does not meet current wind load requirements.
Not sure if that's true or not. Seems like it'd be slightly more prominent from the World Showcase side and more hidden from the Gondola view. Not sure. But you might be right about needing to create a load supporting structure for it. I just wonder if it the idea was ultimately scrapped not due to cost, but laziness or time management. I had hoped they'd move it.
