Obviously if they went with my idea the covers of Forever Evil would have needed to be altered which isn't a bad thing. It's not like that cover is particularly dynamic or iconic. The first issue had variant covers featuring Ultraman, Superwoman, and Owlman. Perhaps they could have made a 3D cover for each issue of the series that featured a different member of the Crime Syndicate.
That idea sounds like a typical fan POV that doesn't take into account what DC felt they needed the covers for in the first place. Forever Evil is going to sell, with or without variants, few of these Villains Month one-shots would have sold the same numbers without the covers. I haven't seen this many people actually in the shops on Wednesday actually there to buy DC Comics since the New 52 debuted, regardless of how we may feel about the covers as gimmicks they have fulfilled their purpose so far, which is to sell comics.
(Needless to say, they messed up with the shortages and the photoshopped rerun images are tacky.)
