Skating is art, if you let it be.
Who ever said an extra 30 seconds or more of footwork would replace spins? That doesn't even make sense.

To me, it has little/nothing to do with the music and the change of foot is particularly distracting. The exit is nice, but that movement could have been part of the choreography anyway.
And so many ice dance teams already end up getting deductions for lifts being too long as it is - I hope the deductions don't become even more frequent. I think it happened to Tessa & Scott just a few months ago at Nationals, and to Weaver & Poje in Sochi, not to mention countless other teams over the past few seasons.
