Eh, a sequel can always handwave away the camouflage if they want to - "the zombies adapted; time for a new strategy."

Yes, the revised ending was absurd and a out of nowhere, but in terms of pacing and tone, its slower, more suspenseful style was a necessary change of pace - after nearly an hour and a half of nonstop rollercoaster violence, to finish up with simply more of the same would have left audiences exhuasted and emotionally unsatisfied.

The fact that the movie didn't come together in the rough cut shows that the screenplay was rough and more than a little stupid from the start. Lindelof's emergency amputation cut out any kind of internal logic, but nevertheless saved the movie.
