Oh yes - that is huge.

It's ironic - most write-ups about this statue mention that the Chinese government condemns the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas and Afghanistan's buddhist heritage, but here they are, about to ruin a site of even greater significance!
If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you believe something is right or wrong, true of false, you believe the assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.

Indeed. These new structures cannot replace what would be learned from the older ones...
