FE is still E-mount, so FE lenses can still work on the crop sensor cameras, right? So isn't this a good thing then, that future Sony E-mount lenses will be 100% compatible with both full-frame and crop cameras? Am I missing something here?

Well, sure. If you are happy to use over-sized FF lenses on a crop-sensor camera.

But you can't pretend that it isn't a compromise. If you actively made a decision to buy a camera system in which you would have to "make do" to get the lenses you want, then fine.

I suspect many NEX buyers did not realise that such a decision was implicit in their purchase.

It isn't always to "make do".   I used several FF lenses on my Nikon cameras when I had plenty of other options.   There is no way you can consider choosing to use the FE 55 f1.8 on a NEX APS-C in lieu of the 50 f1.8 E mount lens making do.  And sure you could technically call it a compromise but then again everything about cameras and lenses is a compromise.  Having the option to use the FE 55 f1.8 is a really nice compromise to have.
