I have to agree on both points.

First, I've rewatched Zeta recently, and I was struck by the lack of
concistency in animation from one episode to another (not to mention
some characters changing faces, just ask Beltochika about that). I
wouldn't say there are fill ins, at least not by today's standarts: come
on, Zeta fillins are still great! That's my point: I'd love to see Zeta
redone (like in the psx version which featured gorgeous anime parts) but
it's still my favorite anime series.

The other part is interesting: I can't picture 0083 as an "official"
gundam series, I mean it's really too gross in a lot of aspects, but
having Zeta mentionning 0083 events would be really great (and I guess
retocon wouldn't be appliable to 0083 anymore). The same goes for 08th
MS Team and its wacky timeline.
