Well, I can tell you it is never going to happen -- we are not going back to WB&RM rules. First of all, each edition had a distinctly different set, which were evolving towards DP the whole time. And the whole point this time around is to make sure the games are 100% compatible, using the same rules. WB&RM and NG are not compatible in that respect.

Different type of magic. And these additions do not make the game longer -- on the contrary, they make recordkeeping easier, since you don't have to remember what stack your magician is attacking or supporting.
