[David Lawrence] "So, getting back to the title of this topic, can we agree that that particular issue is settled? ;)"

Mmm. It's a grey area. I do think that FCPX would have to protect the users from themselves. That's entirely fine. As it stands now, the user needs to be aware of what happens when you use the position tool on a gap.

[David Lawrence] "Right, isn't the intent to position objects in time without rippling? Why treat gap objects differently from clip objects?"

Because the position tools usually leaves gaps when working with video clips. I agree with you, the behavior should be changed to protect the innocent.

[David Lawrence] "Yes, but needs to gracefully default to non-destructive behavior when used creatively."
That's not the job of the position tool. That's the job of the magnetic timeline. The position tools overwrites. It is a tool of intent.
