We plan to make these slot restrictions more consistent in the future
Thanks for this.

TL;DR some players were "gaming" the intention of the designers. Some would call this exploiting, though I would not in this case, but it is a gray area. It is however gaming the system for unintended outcomes, and personally I am glad to see Bioware is attentive to this AND is working to adjust the modable gear to give players the results intended by design, while eliminating the ability to game the design intention.

Players are clever and will find every possible short cut in an MMO. It keeps the development team on their toes too.
