Yup. After "The Day of the Doctor" where we saw that what we thought was a fixed point in time and space was nothing of the story, I don't believe Moffat when he says that "The Angels Take Manhattan" represents a fixed point in time and space.
I don't know, I think his reasoning makes a decent amount of sense, with the idea of too many paradoxes in the same place potentially ripping the city apart, and how the Doctor would not want to take the risk.

With Day of the Doctor, Gallifrey was already doomed to destruction (as far as they knew), so the risk with their plan wouldn't have been nearly as great.

Ultimately, as with most episodes, you have to accept that the Doctor has a much greater insight into these things than we do, and knows a lot better which lines really can't be crossed. And I have no problem with that.
