Well, no matter who did it or 'okayed' it, it's still an edit made for the US release and it'll be on the list.
The old 'the original artist okayed it/did it him/herself' is just a convienent excuse for companies to dodge complaints. I've heard it too often and seen to many companies misrepresent who gave the consent, why they gave it, and what the US company told them to convince them to okay the censorship to give such claims much credibility.
In the end, the US release is edited and that is unacceptible to me.

Considering Hojo had a vested stake in the company himself and it was his own work he chose to edit (no one forced or asked him to), I can't see a reason to complain about it being "edited". I mean, he's the creator and its his work, he can do whatever he wants with it. I'd object if it was the company that published it requested he do it or something, but nothing like that happened.
