Yes, the proposed solution is very sound. You have measurement
being taken from a different inertial frame than from within the
inertial frame of the actual flight taking place on Earth.

From the satellite's perspective, the actual path length is
contracted (shorter), therefore the time of flight is less than
what would be expected over the greater length as measured on
Earth.

Though much smaller of an effect, Gravitation redshift also has
to be taken into account since the satellite is in a weeker
gravitational field as compared to the ground level field
intensity.

I would have thought both would have been accounted for since
these are basic principles of Physics taught in most first-year
college courses. This is unfortunate for what would have been a
great discovery and many times more interesting. But, I guess we
will still have to wait for the final confirmation.
