Things like bliss, chargeshield and undeath are already only usable on the caster, and sharpening blades with whetstones/attaching chargers to them destroys runes, so progress has already been made in that direction. Honestly, I was hoping the Antimagick circle to become more of a non-magick circle, i.e. "We don't use magick for personal reasons, but we're not going to murder every magicker in existence just because of that" kind of philosophy. It's sensible now because of the whole dead gods thing.
And while Antioch and Kinsarmar have a lore-based reason to hate Stavenn beyond the circle system, Celidon and Ithaqua really only have circle to use as a reason.
