Not wanting to be a troublemaker (much) but this jazz hamster thinks it's fine to allow yourself your taste, no matter how great the artist. No one's perfect. The fire, facility and flow of ideas that Tony is noted for was no doubt behind his (allegedly) overplaying against the soloist.

A master musician like Tony will necessarily break the rules because he's re-writing the rule book. I expect it seemed a bit formulaic for him to only "speak" in the soloist's spaces, with the memory of some of Miles's collective improvs ...
