The unsatisfying part is the Vorlons and Shadows being reduced to the level of whining children. Lorien explains stuff and the whiny Vorlon and Shadow ask him if he'll go with them when they leave and go beyond the rim. They were shockingly whiny and childlike.
That's the whole pint - that they ARE children to Lorien. One of the motiffs in B5 is that there is a heirarchy to existence in the universe and that for every omniscient/omnipotent appearing race in the universe, there is a race that is so old and advanced it alost appears to be like THAT race's parent.

The point is that eventually WE become the shepherds to younger races and will WE do better?

It is pretty self-evident.
