So right now, as stats are, most people want Red (agi,str,int) in most sockets, and to get bonuses you want an Orange (red+yellow) or Purple (Red+Blue) occasionally. If the primary stats were spread out among different colors, the Orange and Purple (and Green) gems would be all screwed up. For many classes, Haste or Mastery is a really good secondary stat. If those stayed Yellow, then you could not have a combo gem with the Yellow primary and those secondaries. (ie. if Int was Yellow, Int+Haste and Int+Mastery would be impossible)The only way I could see spreading the primary stats working, is by eliminating combo gems and putting the secondary stats (Haste, Mastery, Spirit, Hit, Crit) on the Green/Purple/Orange gems. In that case I foresee most people never gemming secondary stats if they remain much less valuable than primary stats. Unless they make socket bonuses too valuable to ignore.
