The pointy penalty was removed in V dev versions a couple of years ago. After an outcry led by some well-known veterans, it was put back (despite those same vets subsequently complaining that we never revert anything unpopular).

My guess is that it will inevitably go at some point, in v4 first. But some other, more flavourful and less arbitrary, priest combat restriction will replace it.
