I agree with your points here.

Unfortunately they never do that, no matter how awful she sounds they edit what they've got and don't replace the vocals. I only remember several cases when they fixed wrong lyrics mistakes.

If that were really the case, she would be singing off-beat, which didn't happen.

Yeah, remember Made in Tokyo CDL? It had similar problems, she sounded like a robot after they fixed it.
