I think cunning strike is my favourite single thing in the UA thus far, though I agree that College of Dance looks fun...even if it currently does monk almost (?) as well as the monk, while also being a full caster.

Sadly, subclass restructuring was thrown out of the window to shut down the "incompatible crowd".
:(
It's an understandable concern from their point of view. 5th Edition D&D isn't a perfect game, not by a long stretch. But whether you love it or hate it, you can't deny that it has elevated the entire hobby to new heights, and has been Hasbro's best-selling product for almost a decade running. That "crowd" you're talking about? It's tens of millions of customers, for something that doesn't usually have tens of millions of customers. It's streamers who give them free advertising on hundreds of Internet channels. It's bloggers and freelance writers giving them free promotion and materials. It's the widest majority of all TTRPG players in history, and it's not even close. :) For better or worse, that "crowd" is the face of the hobby now, and probably will be for years to come.

So yeah. They're going to protect that. They've got a goose that's laying golden eggs right now--why would they cook it for dinner (again)?

Those are not the people I speak of.

I think that you got lost in the weeds. There's a segment of the player base who expect absolute textual RAW no changes to anything whatsoever or they very negatively react to any efforts no matter the reason. Gms have spent a decade trapped between they segment and "just homebrew it". If wotc just published the change in 2024 that group might grumble at first, but they will quickly get over it or find themselves with not enough people who care to engage in discussion of what may as well be ancient history. If wotc kept trying to playtest those changes it consumes and overwhelms discussions about too many other tangents to allow for constructive anything.
