That is respect. He respected nearly 70 years worth of stories in telling this story. He respected Mike Barr's work in "Son Of The Demon" by introducing Daimen. He respected what O'Neil, Monech, Grant and Dixon did with the Knight Trilogy by refering to those events. He respected the work of Frank Robbins, Steve Engelhart, Len Wein and O'Neil himself by bringing back the Wayne Foundation penthouse. He respected the writer of "Robin Dies At Dawn" by acknowleding that story. He respected the writer of the League Of Batman. He respected Greg Rucka's work from "Death And The Maidens". He respected a lot of stories from throughout the years. He didn't toss those stories aside. He embraced every single one of them, as well as his work in "Arkham Asylum" and JLA.

What you call respect is akin to taking Adam West's Batman, Burton's Batman and Batman Returns and Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever and Batman Robin as canon for Nolan's new Batman series. There is a reason Nolan didn't do it.

Morrison went too far.
