I'd say that's a pretty significant change.
I have to admit, Pre-Timeskip Simon was way more interesting, Those selfless hero types arn't nearly as interesting. I know if i was in Simon's place and had the power to resurect my dear friends and loved ones, I'd do it. Up to that point in the series, doing the impossible was a main theme(Yes i know victories in war have a cost is also a theme).

I'd expect simon to say something to like "I'll rip a hole in heaven itself to bring my friends back". I know when he grew up he was suppose to be more like Kamina but he could never fill Kamina's shoes. Kamina wasn't a selfless hero nor a perfect straightened arrow.
