Fair enough Fate, we're just arguing crosswise. I would argue that all of those abilities do exactly the same thing in PVP and PVE - there is no relearning the actual ability, for a PVE'r all of those abilities still do exactly what they expect them to do if they hopped into a BG or arena for the first time, based on their PVE experience. What you are describing is relearning how and when to best use/apply them to PVP use - essentially, learning to PVP with the same skill set we use in PVE.

An example of what I am talking about is the difference in CC lengths - a PVE'r would be surprised to learn Roots last a fraction of the time they do in PVE. CC is one example where Blizzard has made the abilities diverge in PVP and PVE.

Yeah, sounds like we're agreeing art cross purposes.

I still pretty much feel that no matter whether the tooltips read the same in PvP/E or not, if you press the button under different circumstances, or for different effect (and as I think we agree, you do) then it's in many ways a different ability.

Given that so many are functionally different anyway, I don't care, per se, if the tooltips change a bit more.
