You're so caught up on military protocol (how often has Trek cared about such things?) that you've missed the point of Spock's story arc, his coming out alegory. Which is sad. Everyone sees, they're all a little suprised, but they all accept it without question.
And now in the next movie they will be snogging all over the damn ship!!!
Oh well, I'm sure they will squeeze McCoy in there somewhere. Perhaps when he gives them the Vulcan/Human babies talk. I imagine it will be a lot crustier than when Phlox did it.
