If Bendis had to get permission to do something shocking with Moon Knight, then I can guess a couple of things. . .
1) Perhaps a serious ret-con, meaning that he alters Moon Knight's history significantly. This could be something weird like revealving knonshu never revived MK and someone or something else brought him back from the dead. Or that one of Moon Knight's past personalities is revealed differently than we suspected (like Marc secretly created the identity of Midnight Man or Black Spectre or someone else and became that person without realizing it).
2) Instead of a ret-con, perhaps Moon Knight goes forward with a very nasty personality. He might develop a villain persona and take out some heroes while in that villain personality and incur the wrath of his fellow Avengers.
I don't know how I would feel if something that wild were to happen. But if it is done respectfully to the character, I would certainly be happy to go along for the ride to see it play out.

: Which is too bad, but at least there will be
: one long coherent story instead of what
: Vengeance of the Moon Knight turned into.
