I personally think it's a much better solution than the LCDM model because it solves several serious problems including the cuspy halo problem and missing satellite problem.
One of the main criticisms I didn't mention yet is the fact that antimatter will still collide with normal matter all over the place and I'm guessing we would see very tell tale signs of that happening because it would produce gamma bursts when they collide.
But if that's the case then antimatter should repel normal, yet it doesn't seem to do that. I feel like there's a very important point to be learned from this but I cannot quite see it yet.
Measurements of the interaction between energetic photons and hadrons show that the interaction is much more intense than expected by the interaction of merely photons with the hadron's electric charge. Furthermore, the interaction of energetic photons with protons is similar to the interaction of photons with neutrons in spite of the fact that the electric charge structures of protons and neutrons are substantially different.
A theory called Vector Meson Dominance (VMD) was developed to explain this effect. According to VMD, the photon is a superposition of the pure electromagnetic photon (which interacts only with electric charges) and vector meson.
However, if experimentally probed at very short distances, the intrinsic structure of the photon is recognized as a flux of quark and gluon components, quasi-free according to asymptotic freedom in QCD and described by the photon structure function.
