I bought the Bell silver proof dollar and the silver proof set with the gilded proof dollar earlier. It seems the RCM realized the word-art thing may not be for everyone so they changed it. So I did buy the SE proof set too, although I'm not crazy about getting the other non-silver coins. The SE version does look better to me. How many variations of Mr. Bell are they planning this year? Reverse proof, some sort of privy mark, one showing him getting his first phone bill ... &

It's certainly a possibility, but it seems unlikely.

The Mint has been issuing Special Edition (SE) Proof Sets that feature a silver dollar (SD) that presents a variation of the design on the regular/annual SD since 2015. The SD in these SE sets has run the gamut from a same-theme/different (sometimes colourized) design (2015, 2016*, 2018*, 2019*, 2020*), to same-design/different finish (2021). The 2017 SE Set includes a SD that was a colorized version of the "Home and Native Land" SD vs. the standard/annual "Confederation" SD. (Note: * denotes colourized design in addition to being a different design.)

Here's a list of them:

2015: 50th Anniversary of the Canadian Flag
2016: 150th Anniversary of the Transatlantic Cable
2017: 150th Anniversary Of Canadian Confederation
2018: 240th Anniversary Of Captain Cook at Nootka Sound
2019: 75th Anniversary of D-Day
2020: 75th Anniversary of V-E Day
2021: 100th Anniversary of the Bluenose

So, I would be surprised to learn that the Mint created the SD with a traditional portrait version of Bell in response to negative feedback on the word art version. IMO, the Mint had its 2022 releases planned well before the January release of the word art design.

I hope you enjoy the SD Set when it arrives!

Received the silver dollar set. The silver dollar with hair looks much better.
