I didnt read most of your post but to this point, no it shouldn't. The items required to to make high level weps/armour should be difficult to obtain (but not impossible) giving gear bags/items value unlike DFUW were everyone had everything and gear ment nothing. There was no reason to go out into the world to get specific resources because everything dropped everything. Finding someone to craft for you shouldnt be a task in itself. It took me 2 hours last night to find someone to craft me r50 bows. This will turn players away FACT. There also needs to be some kind of incentive for players with maxed crafting to craft for other players because currently once a player maxes a crafting skill they are less likely to go out of there way to do any crafting for you.
