It all sounds great but it certainly seems there still is some inequity. For the official,non-charity runners, who need qualifying times, it seems like some could have a huge advantage by not having to re-qualify for Boston 2014. As an example, my brother needs 3:55 but finished Boston in 3:59. Some other runner could have been one who didn't finish but was on pace to run only 4:30, if he had finished. That runner gets a waiver from qualifying but my brother doesn't? Seems like Boston should ensure that no one gets a time waiver if he/she wasn't on pace to begin with. Charity runners are a different story since they had to raise money and did not need to qualify.
