Is lay supplementation and task devolution just a "surface" issue. Critical for service capacity but dodging the fundamental issue?

As you have indicated, the Catholic Church for centuries has tended to be, and has certainly been seen as a centralised clerical monarchy. The key question is whether the Church should formally recognise itself as A Universal Priesthood of Believers, with that concept's massive ramifications for localism, democratic control, and even, to some extent, the emergence of liturgical, theological and moral diversity. Or would such allowance for diversity be an inevitable recipe for disunity and rancour?
