If I'm understanding you right, you're suggesting that the arena and Capture+Hold scenarios be removed of their level-locked status, and have a situation where lvl 30's could run into lvl 50's. I'll tell you what's wrong with that. . .just look at Ker'rat. Even if their stats were boosted due to the lvl 50's in the arena/C+H (like what they do in the fleet PvE events), they would still get butchered. The pugs would become even more frustrating, because you'll be teamed with players who are absolutely out of their depth. Think the noobs in arena pugs are frustrating? Wait till you try removing the level-gating, and you're a level 50 teamed with 4 lvl 30's against a similarly unbalanced team. Or, wait till you're a lvl 30 that gets into a PvP match that has predominantly lvl 50's.
The arena and C+H scenarios are level-gated for a reason. Good level 50's against lvl 40 or below folks is like a shark amongst guppies. There's enough flack about it from Ker'rat, with BoP pilots such as myself ambushing lowbies.
Now, opening new areas like Ker'rat is fine with me, as long as it's made clear to all the lowbies that it's open season in those areas. Anything can and will happen. So, anyone entering those zones knows that they're taking a risk of getting ganked, perhaps repeatedly. Leave the arena and C+H areas for semi-organized matches.
