What I would like to see is for the devs to show us what they're considering and let us give our thoughts before doing anything drastic.
There have been tweaks to the characters before (anyone remember the male elf body change uproar?) and they were received with mixed reactions, to put it mildly.
Before devoting a lot of time and resources to this, I'd like the team to put up some concept art for us to evaluate, and write a proposal on what they're thinking of changing and why they think it's necessary to spend time on. Like a dev diary, but for the design stages.
Something like this can bring out strong feelings. Let the community see it and be able to react beforehand, don't just drop it on us as a done deal.

Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
