Once the possibility of the spin-off came around, that's certainly possible.

The way I see it, the unevenness of season 5 was due to the need to build up momentum again since there was so little left to build on from season four. But I'll take the conclusion of the Londo/G'Kar arc over anything else that might have been shown any day. I may not have phrased that as well as I could have before. That's what I get for posting when I'm on the way out the door for the day.
Yes I'd agree with that, the shift was pretty much unavoidable after the changes to season 4 and I think the G'kar/Londo story ended up being the most effective climax in season 5 exactly because unlike Sheridan, Delenn, etc it wasn't really covered prematurely in season 4.
