I don't think there will be. Moffat has already stated that it doesn't change anything and that Smith still is the eleventh Doctor, so the point is moot and it's only really confusing for people who want it to be confusing.
Agreed. I just don't see an issue here.
The fact Hurt's Doctor was acknowledged as a Doctor two minutes before his regeneration doesn't change the fact he still spent a lifetime
being a warrior and acting in a very un-Doctorly kind of way (even if he is no longer responsible for the worst act of wiping out billions of people anymore).
People can quibble over the number of incarnations if they want, but as far as "true Doctors" go, it seems obvious that he shouldn't really qualify. Because he never truly acted
like a Doctor.
