3: Again, Coulson being back won't cause anyone to shrug off anything if his coming back is both unique and a monumentally huge deal with serious consequences.

Plus, if it DOES turn out that the Coulson on TV isn't really Coulson, just a clone or an LMD who THINKS he's Coulson, then they didn't bring Coulson back anyway, they just created a new related character with a whole lot of angst.
Just because we, as comic book fans, are used to it doesn't make it right. Apply what we're used to in a movie that isn't comic-oriented. What would audiences think if people in Breaking Bad or Dexter suddenly sprang back from the dead, whether they were explained away as faking their death or clones or whatever. It would absolutely cause any future deaths on those shows to be met with suspicion. That's not what you want.
