    I like how they specifically mentions the power cards are not randomized, as though they were at one time considering them to be randomized.

    Martial Powers should be interesting to see, given the "power creep" that was prevalent in 3.5. Have they learned anything from that fiasco (probably not, since they might be going for the "Games Workshop Effect" in which each new thing is better than the last to persuade people to buy it)? Only time will tell.

    Or they've learned that when WotC and cards are used in the same sentence people automatically assume that it will be random and wanted to cut that off from the beginning.

    Just imagine what you would think now, if neither randomized nor non-randomized would be written out!

    I'm guessing that is the most likely reason.
