One point of view would be the prime directive is subject to constant change.
In TOS it wasn't some nebulous philosophy. It was a codified military regulation. General Order #1. It had specific rules for what to do and what not to do. McCoy and Kirk quote part of it in Bread and Circuses.
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
