Without knowing anything about the mechanical implementation of what it will look like, and how close it will match what I envisioned in the other thread, logically it makes sense to de-emphasize ascending bonuses. It allows you build a world where your basic orc is still relevant several levels later.
It allows you to make a game that is super compatible with all prior editions. So much so that with minimal conversion you can run Keep on the Borderlands or classic Tomb of Horrors, or you can shift gears and run through a Paizo AP, or slap on the minis rules and run the 4e Madness at Gardmore Abbey, all with 5e PCs. Thats an amazing degree of flexibility and power.

I was following some live-tweets of the seminar, and they kept referencing "three pillars" when talking about classes.
Can someone explain what these pillars are?

(The other 10% is probably niche modules like crafting, mass combat, dominion rulership, and so forth.)

Well, damn. After following the live tweets of the seminar I'm not all that excited about D&DNext. A DM that only wants to run a basic game using only the core (like me) with players that want complex, mini-based combat just won't work and I have no interest in such a game. Sucks, I was hoping for something different. Oh well.

I think it was "roleplay", "combat", and "explore". Lots of good insight in those tweets / stream, but nothing too concrete. I'm really interested in seeing this modular approach in action.
