That said I'm in the faction saying that it's better to assume that Hel is at least competent enough that her plan would have worked if it came to pass as she wished it, rather than there being some sort of note saying "By the way this plan would have failed no matter what."

I mean sure regardless of whether the plan would have worked or not Durkon and the OotS saved their home from destruction so either way they'd have saved the day for everyone living on the current world, but it'd still feel like a bit of an anticlimax if the big bad of the story arc turned out to be so inept that her plan would never have worked anyway.
Hel's plan doesn't need to have worked in order for her to have destroyed the world, condemning all mortals on it and all future worlds to an early grave (whenever the snarl starts breaking loose for the latter case), as well as the gods to another eternity of repeating the cycle of creation and destruction. Only now they know it could have been different. Sometimes being smart just means you're really good at messing everything up.
