What was the point of Quo Primum if a later Pope can just abolish it?

You're just making this up.  There were no flawed and defective masses being celebrated before Quo Primum, in the sense that the prayers used were heterodox, or savoured of heresy, or that the Offertory was misisng, or that tradition elements such as "the mystery of faith" were juxtaposed with "Christ is Risen" etc. in order to give a false impression, etc.  There was no Arian Canon, as the original N.O. had, there was no heterodoxy at all.

What Quo Primum did was establish uniformity with Rome in the liturgy. 

Archbishop Lefebvre, when questioned by the CDF in 1979, said he didn't know if the Novus Ordo had truly been promulgated by Paul VI.  That's how "problematic" it is to believe that it came from the Church.  It didn't come from the Church, that much is certain.
