The problem isn't coding most of the time, its how it effects the entire game.
As is people complain about certain classes/builds being able to kill things easier then others, one tiny change that you suggest can completely change the entire game(apart from the sorc thing, you can just turn down the sound on voices to 0).
Their is also the fact that Blizzard don't release patches in bits and pieces as it would just be constant patching and changes making things confusing for some players, it is better to do a major patch every few months with a lot of changes so people have time to adjust and so that real figures can come out from changes.
Bottom line, changing things on the fly just to make one or 2 things 'better' could completely change something else unforeseen something you, me and others may not even consider some average Joe could find away to use in a new insane way.
Blizzard needs to look at the bigger picture and the long term, not just a quick fix.
