That said, I argued heavily in beta for an alternative mechanic that wouldn't rely on a reticule spell to achieve the same sort of combo with the pet. Perhaps in the future...
Is this working as intended or is this something the team plans to fix in the future?
OK, yeah, losing both Freeze and Frozen Orb would be a big deal.
Please document further cases like this here — it may help bolster my case to the devs about changing/supplementing the Freeze mechanic.
I'm not sure what kind of case you can make when you yourself pointed out that it is barely an issue to begin with. I'm not sayin it isn't particularly an issue, however I don't really see much an alternative that wouldn't make it worse for us in an attempt to make it better.
The Frozen Orb problem most definitely does need to be fixed though.

Casting an aoe root for single target dps is weird.
Doesn't seem weird at all. When there are multiple mobs it hits multiple targets and you get more than one FoF.
That's just dumb. It has nothing to do with whether it's skillful, and nothing to do with whether it's sometimes useful when you do want to hit multiple targets or when you want to freeze one or more targets. The spell is excellent when you actually want to use it for those purposes. As a single-target rotational ability? Just absurd.
An alternative pet combo that's actually designed as a single-target process and makes you feel like you're working together with your pet to do something that makes sense -- requiring similar skill to pull off, probably sharing a cooldown with Freeze -- would be a great addition. The fact that it would also solve this problem with hitting some targets is another good reason to do it.
