"What's really needed are TWO "Gateways" - one in Earth orbit and the second in Lunar orbit."

I was thinking that too. Since it looks decidedly as though NASA are adding more and more bells and whistles onto a design intended to be launched and in use within 5 years, it seems to me as though they are deliberately dragging their heels to make sure the 2024 deadline can't be made, probably on the assumption that it's an unrealistic and politically motivated goal leading to failure, so might as well "shoot for the moon", eh?
