I'm confused, I thought the whole point of the Amplify cli was so I wasn't modifying cft's directly?

It's almost inevitable that you will modify CFTs in the future. Amplify offers a lot out of the box but there are several solutions that they don't offer from the cli.

I'd also say the intent of Amplify is to offer you a core set of services that includes authentication, database, file storage, analytics, managed hosting, deployments, with more and counting.

The services are supposed to make it more accessible and approachable for backend and front-end devs, which on the whole, they absolutely do. They're still growing and figuring things out though and in the meantime, they've given the option of customizing your CFTs when you need to do something off the beaten bath.
