Okay that makes sense. Back to my point, I feel this idea of putting multiple copies of a spell on to the stack in games such as commander just seems like a logistical nightmare waiting to happen. Especially when multiple spectacle cards are put onto the stack at the same time and people are responding while the Player B, C and D's original copies are still on the stack.
Edit: I don't even want to think about how this will work if the casting player has a Hive Mind on the field...
That's a thing that happens all the time in more casual games. Not saying that it can't be confusing and require the group to slow things down for a minute and piece through what resolves and when, but it's not like WotC has stopped that in the past.
[Edit: Assuming that Spectacle works like all other alternate costs and copy abilities] If Hive Mind is out, nothing particularly special happens; each other player other than the one that Spectacle'd the spell would get 2 copies in sequential turn order (A, B, C, D, B, C, D)
