I see your point that the Packers need to get away from having him as a fall back option. That would seem to be entirely in their control though. Simple solution, don't ask him to come back. Its up to them to commit to the future without Favre and I don't think Favre will be too unhappy if they do move on. We'll see in the future. It will be rough for a couple years more than likely, but I think they will be ok. The question will be can this team find a new identity without Brett and how will they replace his leadership.
That's a great point, I think largely overlooked in everything going on with Favre and the Packers.
Favre was the face of the Packers. Favre was the undeniable leader of the Packers.
I don't see Aaron Rodgers replacing him in either aspect, so the question you've precisely pinpointed remains "Who will become the new face of the Pakcers and who becomes the new leader of the Packers?"
