Um, Tomino didn't have anything to do with 0083, other than it used his original Gundam setting. Not writing the story, not helping in the production (as far as I know at least), nothing. He is only responsible for giving the writers, Takashi Imanishi, Fuyushi Gobu, Akinori Endo,
 Asahide Okuma, Ryosuke Takahashi, a place to play in. He's not even listed in the credits (except maybe as from the original Gundam concept/design). Don't beleive me? Go to the Mecha Domain

or the Gundam Project page(s):

So don't go blaming Tomino for all the deaths (although, judging from Zeta and Char's Counterattack, he'd have no problem killing off the characters you mentioned.
