whaaaat? if lore said elin were seven year olds I would not question it because they look like seven year olds, not sure how I can tell that they are not supposed to be seven years old without reading the lore
I do wish there was a way to make both sides happy, but I don't think you'll find it.

There has never been and will never be a problem finding a solution to make both happy. It is called offering both looks, and letting the players themselves choose.
If they did this, everyone would be happy. Instead they did not do this, so that people went behind their backs and modded the game back. Meaning we have the same result for players as if EME had done the right thing, but people are breaking rules and bad mouthing EME.
It is the exact same thing as PvE and PvP servers. They could have done only PvE servers and said "There is no way to make everyone happy", or they could offer you a choice of PvE or PvP servers. The choice alone increases sales drastically.
In some cases there is no way to make everyone happy. For example warrior buffs, where even if you liked the old warrior, it is hard to claim EME should have split it into "Old warrior class" and added "new warrior class" and let people roll one of them. But in surprisingly many, all you need is an option. (Like you don't need easier dungeons, you can add an easy mode)
While plausible, will this fit in line with the sensibilities the developer was putting into the game when they added in the mod on the armor?
The issue is, the only way to change it is to make it similar to a Gore slider, where you would adjust the 'skimpiness' of outfits. And to be fair, to add that in for one race alone is more work than just taking out the mods in teh first place, which is more work than just leaving the mods as they are now.
Now, simply to play devil's advocate for a moment, if they tried to make a 'every armor has 2 sets' deal, people would complain when they get the wrong one they don't like the look of. Even with an outfitter, there are still some items that just don't match your model.
To say people choose, well, if it's represented to others, then someone who feels it offends them would see you running around in an Elin G-String and would feel discomforted by it. So that doesn't work.
The last option is simply changing the .Dat files like a lot of people do. But EME doesn't support this, so it's rougher and possibly could get you banned (have not heard reports of it, but eh - who ever wants to be the first?)
My last concern is on an RP server. This is a minority, however, so not as important - but if everyone sees only what option they select (Skimpy Outfits / Not Skimpy outfits), then it would be harder to roleplay within this universe. All characters would simply have to not make mention of their outfits, which in descriptive writing or in describing a character, is harder than you think.
These are my opinions. I'm glad you are so passionate about this - it's good to have your beliefs. :) But I do still feel, that if we keep in mind the feelings of the developers when they made these changes (That the outfits were too far), then we can see it's not such a simple fix.
