Make poison more a debuff?

So poison has that annoying 1 pt d.p.t. & 1 option is to make it more like cuts where the rates increase at higher numbers or like PCBs/CPBs poison. However it's also preventing regen of HPS (not sure about SPs), a minor loss to device skill, not sure if there's anything else. Arguably that 1 pt of damage is just annoying the player while a debuff counter counts down. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I like that. But for debuff, I would say it should knock two or three points off the three primary melee stats. (Ouch!)

I don't think CPB's poison works well. It has mostly just neutered drolems.

Just to put it out there...why not increase poison damage cap to 1600 in line with the base four?
