Dual Specialization Price Reduced in Cataclysm Beta

The price of learning a second class specialization has just dropped in the Cataclysm Beta.  Where as the feature costs 1,000 gold on the live servers, the Beta price has been reduced to only 100 gold.  It is unclear at this point whether the change went into place simply to facilitate more specialization testing within the Beta or whether it is ultimately intended to go live.

Personally, I really hope that the change is a legitimate re-evaluation of the feature's price.  At level 40, 1,000 gold is a pretty heavy price, especially for characters which are not being supported by a level 80 sugar-daddy.  I also firmly believe that the dual spec is a welcome convenience which greatly benefits the entire World of Warcraft community.  More people being able to afford a second spec can be nothing but good in my opinion.  Then again, as a chronic altoholic and hybrid class aficionado, my opinion may be slanted.
