I disagree. The writers, I think, are in on the joke.

I'm extremely suspicious that JJ isn't just the writers' way of saying that everyone who complains about Daniel and Dannifer is a terrible brat. In fact I'm expecting any day to read a spoiler that he sells Parker on the black market.
Oh, I definitely think this is so. Also, Anne is their way of saying "only ugly jealous bitches hate Dannifer."
But the trick is, Anne is played by an wonderful and very attractive actress with great comic timing and charisma.
And JJ had been introduced with troubles that are very organic to the story, and he's the son of Jack Deveraux. He's also played by a pretty good, albeit green, you actor with screen presence. More than a few people are going to be on JJ's side.
So, they will have to give Daniel access to a time machine. And have all the characters always ask "Where's Daniel" when he's offscreen. (Simpsons references. But Daniel has been given the Poochie treatment.)
Look, they know we hate Dannifer. However, they also know that Dannifer hatred gets A LOT of posts on web pages (just check this forum) and that generates buzz.
Having a golden couple that viewers hate only works if you have the viewers' voice in the form of characters on the show. Anne, and now JJ, are those characters.
Dannifer are "perfect." So they're there to represent us and knock them down a few pegs.
It's a classical setup by the writers. And it's genius.
