What exactly is Geko's role in development at this point?

Based on the slim hope, that some of the more nutty changes would not have been put into the game, if Cryptic had actually had a say in the development of the game (wishful thinking, I know)?!
Well, we've been consistently told that Cryptic has control of day-to-day operations without PWE's involvement. And that's believable. Anyone who's worked for a large corporation will know that 90% of the time even individual departments function as autonomous fiefdoms.
And honestly the game is in the best state it's been since launch despite a few "told you so" changes that have largely been reversed.
I think a lot of people are still in denial about this game being run on a free to play business model now...
