Does Expertise Make Orange Crit Redundant?

Reading about the value of expertise in PVP at L50 -- with Orange Crafting allegedly being able to yield an extra-augment slot which doesn't support expertise. Does this make Orange Crit Armour / Weapons a liability? The option of wearing Custom Armour was appealing given the dire look of much of the L50 PVP Armour and there's something inherently rewarding about tweaking a set to one's own style. I'm also guessing whatever gives the Expertise can't be pulled out of Champions gear and applied to Orange?

I'm hoping they adjust things so you can mod out your own set, but that leaves little room for PVE drop excitement if all you're getting is mods every time.

this is correct and was done on purpose. They do not want you having access to this mod for the ability to move it around for reasons they discussed (if you search for their post on the subject).

The only hope is that they intend to itemize a pvp armoring be availbale somewhere as they did with PvE (making the mod drop separately).
