It's a concession for giving white a permanent pawn weakness and fighting for the center with f5, which would never be possible otherwise. It's really not so much different than the Nimzo-Indian in principle.
...f5 can be played in the nimzo too, but without ...g6 and i have played this line once or twice myslef. Its very dutch-like, in fact. So why not just play the nimzo with ...f5?
White doesn't have to allow f5 in the Nimzo.
honestly..the only true rival of Magnus is this man
