Yea, Moffat's just toning down the "Time Lord Victorious", and giving the Doctor back the lower profile he used to try to keep (When the Time Lords were always looking over his shoulder). In the Classic Series, after he'd saved the day, and he was thanked, more than once he presented a "Don't mention it...To Anyone. Seriously, not to anyone"
And this will all, eventually culminate in "The Fall of the 11th"
