Re: So how should Apple have played this?

Yes, the correct way for it to be handled would be for the phone to pop something that basically tells people their battery is being degraded through age, and the phone is slowing down to compensate and giving them an 'ok' button and a 'settings' button to click to go to the right place to change that behavior.

Not telling people was never going to fly - something I'm sure the higher ups would have known but this decision was probably made and implemented by some middle manager and his team, and the execs didn't learn the details until the whole thing blew up in their face.
