you get a darned sight closer to it with a different fork design.
With different axle, brakes and dropouts this would likely take a few seconds with a file to sort out.
But this fork doesn't have a different fork/axle or brake design,so the OP,and yourself FTM,will simply have live with it if they want discs and a through axle or send it back ain the hope a replacement will be perfect .
Let's not forget we are discussing a -2mm alignment issue!
EDIT; BTW your file fix only works if one fork leg is longer than the other,if the fork leg splay is unequal it doesn't by your own reckoning.
PS,you'll want the last word I've no doubt but but that's me done,have a nice day
