The ability to mod swap isn't really a valid argument to me here. The reason people don't try to push the crit chance beyond 35-40% is because of the diminishing returns on the crit rating stat. The DM from crit gained from WP is separate from the DM of crit chance gained from crit rating. So at the end of the day, you're still just stacking power instead of crit rating and not power over WP.

As an aside, bonus healing, crit chance, and surge rating all have synergy with each other. The higher your crit chance, the more value you get out of your bonus healing and surge rating. The higher your bonus healing, the more value you get out of crit and surge. So on and so on. You're best off continuing to gain some of each than you stacking just one. Crit rating and surge rating have some pretty nasty DM at end game levels, but are still worth gaining because of the synergy with bonus healing. You'll just put less focus into adding those stats than you would further back the DM curve.
