Just because theres a misunderstanding, doesn't mean the writers are trying to make that a thematic element. When you look in other shows, which make such profound claims as "peace is only reached through understanding" then you know you have something.
I guess my point all along is that, while understanding may not be the main theme in CE, it is still there as part of the story in one form or another. Heck, half of the time, the pilots are all accusing each other of not understanding the situation, thus making the situation worse in their opinion. (e.g. Athrun to Cagalli/Kira regarding their intervention)

That's what happened anyway.
