Why not add in a reduction in conquest points required to purchase gear as the season progresses? Like a 25 point deduction per week. That way casuals/people re rolling aren't left in the dust mid way through the season.
Include honor gear too. We need to PVP to get honor, but with only a couple PVP pieces, the prospect of rolling into a BG/Arena does not sound fun when you often come up against full conquest-geared players. I actually *want* to PVP at 90 (I never really got into it before), but since I started the xpac late, I don't even want to queue for BGs now >.>
Even SWTOR has a system to try and not leave new players incredibly behind in PVP, by giving a free full set of PVP gear when you hit max level (the gear is comparable to the crafted gear in WoW in terms of relative power) - also includes a weapon, which irks me because I'm pretty sure I can't even get enough points to buy a pvp weapon before this season is over.
Since Blizzard decided to put a TON of pvp-power on weapons, their importance is extremely high and I won't be able to buy one for several weeks... why no Honor weapons for purchase? Make them 4,000 honor so you can't just run 1 BG and buy it, but don't put it behind huge hurdles like the CP weapons currently are. Make them 458s like honor gear so they're still decent (that pvp-power) without forcing PVE players into PVP to get a better starter weapon for raiding.
Sometimes I seriously wonder how the Blizz playtesters/QA guys and devs can be so short-sighted...
