What is Blizzard's obsession with keeping everything in Diablo 3 so "simple"?
Like how many awesome features or enhancements have been dismissed out of "Well, we want to keep it simple"
In case you haven't noticed, this game has been simplified to death.
Until the developers acknowledge the real, core, fundamental problems with the game (itemization, no character customization, no randomness or openness in the world, etc.) then this is just wasted effort.

Often I can restore half my life with just two quick casts of WoL. And when I'm regenerating spirit as fast as I do, it becomes almost OP. There is serious life restoration in that one passive.

If we allowed players to just initiate duels by right-clicking on a player's portrait or in the Friends List, that feature could and probably would be used to grief people by pulling them into duels at arbitrary moments. Heck, even if this system required that the invited player interact with some sort of confirmation dialogue before a duel could be begin, someone still could theoretically spam the bejeebus out of the invite system and use the dialogue feature to interrupt other players’ demon slaying fun time. =/
When the 1.0.7 PTR went live, you saw a lot of one-hit kills because players are stepping into the Scorched Chapel with their offensively-oriented PvE gear and sometimes even their PvE skill builds. You are certainly going to see a lot of one-hit kills in an environment like this. Sometimes you see one-hit kills simply because you’re vastly out-geared by your opponent. However, if players re-gear for some survivability in their item and skill choices, things have the potential to shift.
Andrew: Trading is certainly super important, but I wouldn’t say the game is based on trading. Diablo III is about killing monsters and finding evermore powerful enemies and items to kill them with. Trading is just one method by which players can obtain items, and the Auction House is currently the most popular way to do that.
