In one sense, the reason these aren't account-wide BOFF's and the reason they cost what they do is by design.

Since it is intended that these BOFF's are tradeable, it also follows that you can buy one, turn around and put it on the Exchange, and then rake in EC's from players who have the EC's and aren't willing to pay real dollars for them.

I'm not sure it's a great tradeoff. And I don't like the fact that it permits doing that kind of thing, but I'd rather have it tradeable than not.

One advantage of this is that you can (theoretically at least) get these BOFF's trained by other players, where you can't do that with the untradeable account-wide BOFF's.
