I will concede that it isn't a confirmation of Vince's intention. But when paired with the rest of the episode it feels quite warm to me. Maybe that's confirmation bias, but I'm still not convinced that the finale isn't intended to redeem Walt as much as is feasible.
Even if much of the final episode provides Walt some redemption, he's still a round character, and he isn't an archvillain. Also, the show was not inconsistent in its tendencies to avoid justice for the corrupt. Saul, for example.

Additionally, treacherous people can do good things for ambiguous reasons. The killing of Jack's gang was not born out of a quest for righteous justice, but the outcome was still a good one.

Even if you see Gilligan as a moralist, Walt "getting away" is not an absolute statement on what he feel should happen; it could just be the machinations of a ****ed up world.
