Nah, that just ruins the sorcerer's last big attraction: spontaneous casting. I know that people consider the wizard to still be better, but for people like me, who just hate the bookwork involved with prepared casting, sorcerer will always be king.
Wizards are supposed to be masters of versatility, and I increased that for the archmage, so I'm happy about that.
Though to be honest, an arcane spirit shaman would be interesting to see.
