And shamans and essential characters still have to take predetermined powers.
The proposal is not about to police more than WotC, but about the need of a houserule that get rid of the problem of only one class, but it is a problem other classes share.
It is not:
'Is giving the choice to ignore the warlock's pact at-will bad?'
'Is it necessary to have a house rule to allow warlocks to ignore the warlock's pact at-will?'
Maybe no for the first, but a certain no for the second, IMHO.

The most memorable and distinctive thing about Tsi'Ri was her familiar which was a third eye with independant will. It differenciated her from all other warlocks and I really liked it. So I tried to reinforce her most distinctive feature by granting her a tattoo with appropriate powers and fluffed it as an extension of her mystical third eyed. I was really happy about that treasure choice... but the player sold the tattoo! It left me rather nonplussed, I tell you that! Elecgraystone prefered having 20% of its value in cash and stick strictly to the wish list.
There is no denying that PC was very effective, though. And there is nothing wrong with his/her choice. This anecdote just illustrate a difference in philosophy. That mini-clash between her style and mine lead to some of the frustration expressed by the player in the recently ressurected thread about letting players trade items. Hopefully, that's not why the player left L4W (Tsi'Ri did go on another adventure under a different DM before going MIA). Not sure I would do anything different, though; I am entitled to my own philosophy and freedom.
But this why I am opposed to removing the houserule. Personnally, I'd never make a warlock that dispenses with the pact's signature power altogether, but that's my choice. People should always have as much freedom as is reasonable in a communal gaming world. Anything that pertains solely to the PC should be left entirely in the hand of the player. It's kind of the Habeas Corpus of RPGs!

''Here, Here, Hear, Hear!''
That sounds like ridiculously peppy way to see : ''If you ever someone to talk to, I'm here for you.''
How sweet. Thank you, buddy.

And IIRC, even if nobody else actually took the option, a lot of people said they felt the same way when it was being debated, so it wasn't chosen just for Ts'iri.

Well...Joe I do believe you are still officially a judge (assuming you want to). You were moved to "inactive". It's a simple matter of adjusting the Charter to move you back to active.
