These were the same thoughts I had initially. If it isn't broken, why fix it? On the other hand partnering with two companies may speed up the process of digitizing the records and make them more widely available.

The value of digitizing more records is evident to historians and
genealogists. Since NARA has also partnered with Footnote.com to do the same
type of work on other NARA record groups, with splendid results, my
-- Isn't Footnote.com a better venue for our access to additional NARA
record groups than Ancestry.com?
-- Isn't Footnote's corporate policy a little easier to take than
-- Isn't Footnote's interface easier to navigate?
Maybe NARA feedback might applaud the digitization but recommend increasing
the scope of the partnership with a company you prefer.
Just thinking out loud here.
