Of course they will change things, but dropping the price of a luxury item from 4 mill to 5 bucks is a slap in the face to those who worked for them.. it would be the same as if they came out next month with the ability to buy unlocks into endgame gear(26-28), like the artifact gear unlocks, then put up dreadguard and warhero gear up for sale for CC. People worked for that gear, then later the Devs come along and say "here, you can now buy these for 5 bucks".
It makes as much sense as putting defense rating on smuggler gear.. must be a QQ thing, right?
There is a difference between convenience and P2W. You don't need rocket boots for anything that matters. Under your logic, I am surprised you aren't crying for a refund now that the game is free.
