I don't think this is true. This is clearly by design. Tionse, Columi, and Rakatta all use the same skin as well and F2P (from everything I've read) wasn't in anyone's mind until well after launch.

I think you're over-reaching here. I think the logic behind this is because while you're building up near gear you will be half & half for a while. Having similar looking gear with different color swatches minimizes that affect. This would have been a big concern pre-launch when end game items weren't' fully moddable, now that they are it's worth pointing out that this should be re-evaluated.
