Stats are not differentiated.
You make a change to a skill in PvE>It does the same in PvP. Vice versa.

Like when they changed the various STF sets.
PvPers complained because it nerfed this and that.
PvE'ers complained because it nerfed that and this.

PvE and PvP can rarely co-exist in the same biome. One exist peacefully and the other complained a lot when I sniped them with my TR. :p
Guild Wars did it right with their differentiating stats/skills. And they are close to a 50/50 mix of PvP and PvE.
I prefer my PvP with at least a minor semblance to balance.

So by all means. Make a new sector just for open PvP.
But as long as PvP is the forgotten stepchild it wont work.
