BUT, what I'm arguing for is to make standard roller relevant again. Like a player that no longer finds standarts satisfying and so opts for the challenge of randarts, if it worked as I'm proposing for the standard roller, choosing the class could become an element of the fun.

Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
