I would imagine the stat changes to gear are probably to level the playing field for all players on Blizzards part. Currently my main, a Discipline Priest has way less Spell Power than the Shamen on our team who is always raving about how high his crits hit for and how much spell power he has. Well, of coarse his heals are hitting for huge amounts he has something like 2800 spell power buffed, where as I have about 2200. When Blizzard removes the Spell Power stats and allows Intellect to drive it, it's going to allow people like me to get as much spell power as a Shamen has. I don't think they are necessarily trying to "Dumb-Down" the game, I think they are simply trying to make things more fair on a greater scale. If they had kept Armor Pen, and all of those other stats people would have been fine, for some people changing things won't make a difference anway... They don't have enough experience or do enough research to get the big picture of things anyway. Time will tell if these changes will effect things for the better, in the long run, I don't think it's going to hurt anything at all, especially not a persons intelligence - that's something that is driven by the person's brain, not Blizzard! :-)
