The situation is hardly as simple

As GDT "not caring." He does care. Any man who spends two years scripting and designing a movie, and even taking time out of his schedule to post on a fansite, clearly cares.

Understand that Hollywood is a complex system. I would imagine that if GDT had no plans for future projects, he'd be more inclined to wait a little bit longer for the Hobbit issues to get sorted out. But the fact of the matter is - that's not the case. He has a contract with Universal studios to deliver several projects for them over the course of the next several years. The only reason he was able to take on The Hobbit was because, originally, it wouldn't have conflicted with that agreement. But now it does. You can't begrudge him for having his hands tied. It's unfair to expect a director to put his life on hold for six years when he has other commitments.

Nobody wanted it to come to this, least of all GDT. So please don't suggest that he just walked away because he wanted to.
