You are right the true answer is to strip out all stats and go "naked" into pvp and really see who is best,.
Does a focus guardian want the same stats as a vigilance guardian? Do all specs in the same tree work best with identical stats?
If you read the forums at all you will know that there is not universal agreement over what the ideal stats are for any particular class/spec. In other words, min/maxing is a mini-game.
It is possible to have the min/maxing gear mini-game with little or no grind.
If you want to reduce or eliminate the gear grind that is something I would discuss.
Above with your "naked bolster" comment you eseentially say everyone should have identical stats. I.e. the min/maxing mini-game should be eliminated. That I do not agree with.
