I agree with giving certain bonus tied to factions rather than restrictions. WoW did such restrictions in its Vanilla run and had to undo them in the first expansion because the players wanted Alliance Shamans and Horde Paladins. Heck, they even got rid of the original Priest's racial abilities.

With the bonus, you can at least roll whatever you like and only worry about factions when min-maxing, which is completely optional.

They could also go back to having Major and possibly Minor Skills, and just restrict all non-Ma/Mi skills to Novice or Apprentice level.
It's pretty obvious they'll return to Major/Minor skills, but I think they'll make non-combat skills the Minor skills and the combat skills the Major Skills just to be more MMO-friendly.

But they could restrict how the perks are spent in the Major skills like you said. Taking Skyrim's skill system as an example, they could make you choose three primary skillsets:
  • Archery, Two-Handed, One-Handed, Illusion, Conjuration, Destruction, Restoration or Alteration
  • Light Armor or Heavy Armor
  • Sneak or Block
And allow to fully max those three skillsets while restricting the others of the same series and restricting even more the more skillsets you choose in the same series (like having all the perks on Two-Handed but only being able to pick Restoration up to 50 skill perks and Archery up to 25 skill perks). That way, builds among players will be more homogenized and reflect class archetypes, thus making balancing easy while still respecting the freedom of choice of the players.

Be prepared for the same shit you get with any MMO. It's just going to be World of Warcraft, but worse, in a different skin.
Unfortunately most MMO producers still haven't figure out that it isn't by copying WoW that they'll be the next big MMO. Let's see if Bethesda has an epiphany or it'll be more of the same.
