‘Non-canonicity puzzle’ ?

Is there so-called ‘non-canonicity puzzle’ in General Relativity ? In our recent paper (arXiv:1108.6105) we show there is none. We argue that any modification of Dirac’s procedure for the constrained Hamiltonian with the aim to prove the legitimacy of non-covariant changes of field variables, or rejection of Dirac’s procedure because it does not allow such changes is equivalent to the rejection of the covariance of General Relativity, and to surrender to such temptation is truly puzzling.
