It seems to me that a certain group is redefining Aikido to meet what they are teaching. Which is fine but invoking authority about Morihei Ueshiba is a little overkill to me.
As Demetrio said - there's no one in Aikido who doesn't do that. I do think that there are some pretty good reasons why people in that group (which really isn't a group - just some folks with similar interests) may think that there is a strong connection to Ueshiba, but that's another conversation.

Mark said it so well that I don't have much to add - his experience mirrors mine.
