We must also consider how fundamentally broken many key aspects of the game are. Adding new major features is not something I want to see when the game has major flaws even now.
If they put a UI into the game, then it's possible to mod it.
Personally, I'd love to see some UI customization added. The game sorely needs it, but if there's one reason why it can't be done, I'd have to attribute it to IP. Sure it was one of WoW's best features, but blizzard owns the ******** IP. it's theirs. For Cryptic, there may be some issue with their CBS overlords. The execs may not want us to make hello kitty themed UI's. Or how about the first person that mods his power distribution bars to look like lightsabers or something? We want it, cryptic may even want to give it to us, it may not be wholly up to them though.
