If rumors are true, he lambasted Maaya Sakamoto too. (Lunamaria Hawke) So he'd pretty much have to voice his own characters if he ever decides to direct a new anime.
Don't forget that at the 2008 NY Anime Festival, Rie Tanaka said that Lacus was the hardest role she played so far, partly because she had to act in a certain way to make Fukuda/Morosawa happy.

The fact that his wife is always around helping him somehow also plays a role.
Morosawa had cancer, but she didn't specify what kind of cancer she had. But I can't help but think if her "cancer" excuse means that she's going through a Hideaki Anno-esque Creator Breakdown phase.
