The Guardians not being immortal could be pulled off, too, especially if you say that really there a whole secret planet of them someplace, and the council that everybody sees is just the group selected to maintain the fiction. When somebody on the council retires or dies, they pick a replacement, have them go by the same name, and alter their appearance as necessary to maintain the illusion (heck, to most races the Guardians probably all look alike, anyway).

I'd hate that direction, like I'd hate the Guardians as deceptive serial failures just putting on a show, but it COULD be done. I don't know that it would be any worse than what Geoff did to the Guardians (it actually seems kind of like more of the same thing, really).
