Well, at least if you are refering to kd3s diff, its just not done perfectly..
The cata UI is based off 3.3(.3), and all the changes from .5 are not in there yet, so it looks like its reverting all this. Diff it against 3.3.3, and it looks alot saner.

It might be a "problem" that blizzard is unsure about allowing addons - or better to say, tends to not allow addons for quite some time, in the beta. That could play a role in their decision to give beta keys to addon authors. I'm afraid, if it's going to happen, it's at least not very soon.

I expect they want the mastery-related UI changes thoroughly tested before they let people use addons again. And that does seem to be at least a month off, probably more.

It would be insane never to include authors at all though, since no one else is going to test the API, and someone has to do it.
