The skill point system gets totally revamped regularly. It's been reworked at least 4 or 5 times already. It's not a matter of "if" ... and it's overdue to be revamped again. Players have way too many SPs now and they have too much of an impact on gameplay; which in turn creates a divide between new players and vets. So, if we accept the premise that the clamp was done for accessibility to new players -- SPs will have to be reworked again very soon. I'd bet on this year.
