It is talent creep and mechanics decay. IIRC Fire mages were the first class to get talent pushback or at least the good version of it (Frost got +hit and Arcane had 100% resistance to pushback on AM). Then in TBC they gave it to most casters but it was still fairly deep down in the talent trees and was really a reward for getting to max level (however pushback resistance is only REALLY great for levelling and PVP).This was the reason that frost was such a great levelling spec (or you at least started your rotation with frost bolt), you didn't have to worry about six second fireballs from some mob whacking on you.These days they should just remove it as we have come a long way from when casters were based around casting a few powerful spells* and so melee needed to delay those spells in PVP.*In classic you were originally meant to use your wand even when raiding.
