For the record I believe the suggested change can result in less swaps when you have just a single source of rF+/rC+ because suggested 25% damage reduction is less valuable than current 50% damage reduction.

Of course you didn't reach 27 spellcasting, it wouldn't allow you to spam level 9 spells in that version so it had very low priority.
Also you don't need 27 spellcasting, level 9 spell costing 4 MP (spellcasting 15 is even a bit low for level 9 spell) is already OP.
