This is not to say that there is no progress, but it may be at a slower pace, or include elements needed to address the needs of other members. 

+ Were the Board or CEO to publicly state "We've decided to not make further investments in LoTW at this time, because it's working fine, and we have bigger fish to fry", that would be honest. Some members might disagree with their priorities, but the "Iteratively improve vs start-over-from-scratch" debate would become moot.

+ So long as the CEO's public plan of record is "the first step in improving LoTW is to blow off our right foot", that debate will continue.

 
Arguing about prior decisions, architecture, and business requirements when most of those involved in the process are no longer on the scene, makes little sense and is a waste of energy that does not advance the cause.  "No point in crying over spilt milk."

+ This is especially true in software engineering, as its actual practitioners well know.
