I can't help but wonder what they *did* have in mind. ??? ???

Gathering around the table of the Lord, that's what they had in mind. Let's get back to "early church simplicity" and focusing on the Eucharist as a MEAL. I am sure there are many churches in the diocese of Springfield that are modern and the pastor won't want the tabernacle front and center. If you have an old church with those beautiful high altars, like the ones you posted above, moving the tabernacle (or keeping it) front and center makes absolute sense.

A few years back our then-new pastor moved our tabernacle to the high altar - we have a gorgeous century-old church. We were so happy.
