I think it works fine within the context of the show it was developed for, but I don't generally like the idea outside of that.

I mean, it was pretty much only done so that they could 1. Get away with a "Krang"-like character (since they knew people would complain if there wasn't one, given the FW show's popularity) without it actually being Krang, and 2. So they could cut Shredder's head off and have it not actually be a big deal. So, "Kids Cartoon" reasons rather than actual "This makes the story better" reasons.

Outside of the specific context of a kids' cartoon, there's really no reason to do it. And while I'm fine with it for what it was, I also completely understand why some people absolutely hate the idea.
