Yes, these titles show different aspects of Mary, and what speaks most to one person might not to another.

The bigger problem is that whatever one's opinion on this title is, there have been plenty of saints who have written about it, and a lot of Catholics who would like it to be proclaimed, and the Pope dismisses it all as foolishness. It's insulting, but not surprising from a man who's already criticised orthodox Catholics as rigid and breeding like rabbits, refuses to condemn atheism and idolatry, and refuses to clarify his unorthodox opinions which he attempts to pretend are doctrine.
