Hell, they're kinda ******** on Cannon as well. This week they've already referred to Anakin as Master Skywalker.
Eh. It is more out of respect since he has a padawan. Kenobi was often addressed as Master Kenobi in AOTC but I think he was technically supposed to be just a Knight.
This was how I took this as well... He's a Master to his Padawan... But is he a "Master" on the council? Nah, and he's not really a Master to Kenobi, Yoda, etc. If anything, he's being tested as much as Ahsoka is, which they play up in the conversations away from Anakin and things. I think that's just semantics too... He's being pushed to "mature" a bit by being given Ahsoka... Maybe he wasn't progressing as they'd hoped after AOTC?
Remember he went in, he fought with Obi-Wan seemingly non-stop, he lost his arm due to his dumbass behavior, and now the war's on and nobody can be left babysitting someone you can't trust, so it seems like they're trying almost a "remedial Jedi class" with him by forcing a trainee on him, trying to make him "grow up" by giving him someone to be responsible for.
