Well, they could have still addressed it without doing a whole revenge plot. Maybe he masters the White and seeks out Sinestro... and "forgives" him.

In retrospect, it comes off like Geoff Johns wrote it because it seemed badass at the time...then he immediately regretted it once the issue hit the stands. I think he writes stuff he regrets all the time, and doesn't think things through.
I bet this is absolutely what happened.
