Over in his ever popular Formspring account, Tom Brevoort shared the original pitch that JMS provided for the controversial One More Day storyline. Judging by what Brevoort mentioned here, the alternative could have been just as, or perhaps even more controversial. They wouldn't go through all the trouble of bringing back Gwen Stacy just to keep Peter and MJ together, would they?
In any case, Brevoort adds that the story was not approved because "it would have absolutely invalidated and erased or changed every Spider-Man story going all the way back to when Stan was still writing the series, which wasn't desirable." It's an interesting view into what went behind the scenes for one of the most controversial stories of the modern era.
