The duty to properly form one's conscience with the mind of the Church has also been Catholic teaching forever.  This is not a case of invincible ignorance where one can follow an improperly formed conscience and not commit sin in the process.  She has been taught by the Church that the NO Mass is a valid Mass. 

We are not talking about some wishy-washy section in Vatican II that creates confusion, etc.  We are talking about the validity of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  One can choose to believe that, while valid, the form of the Mass is not as perfect or as edifying as it could be.  However, deliberately choosing to follow an improperly formed conscience is not even remotely the same thing. 

The "conscience trumps all" argument, while not putting it in context with the rest of the Church's teaching on conscience, has been the go to move by Cafeteria Catholics the world over for the past 50 years.  The fact that some on Fish Eaters do not know that, or choose to ignore at as long as it moves someone towards tradition, is more than troubling.
