Well if you screw up the ID system badly, sure, but if it's balanced properly the two could certainly co-exist. I'm with prh182, the old ID system wasn't perfect, but neither is the new. At least the old had a legacy, and a certain medieval brutishness.

I'm a fan of the notion of ID by use, just not in V, and certainly not V's current "quick n' easy" version of it.
