^^^ Y'know, it wouldn't surprise me if they threw something like that in there.
My only concern is if they junk the world up with too many monsters, it will become nigh impossible to get anything done. They will need to make the player character more powerful, then we get into RPG-style rating upgrades, and it may make for a needlessly complex system. One of the things that initially appealed to me about MC was its elegant simplicity. The more complex it gets, I fear it may lose appeal.
