As in title, I don't see what's the point really and how it is intended to work in Alliance.

Before people start asking retarded questions:

He asks from DESIGNER'S standpoint, so people telling something like "to make tools better!" will deserve being told to fuck off.

To validate the 'favourite loadout, never changing it' behavior that makes some newer players so hard to deal with in skirmish. (hopefully not)

To make choosing ammo easier - upgrade greased, use it on most guns, upgrade burst, use it on most of the rest, retire from thinking.

To allow more/easier use of the buffing tools by making upgraded mallet/wrench a replacement for spanner + mallet. (this one is i think a good thing)

It is i think i heard somewhere intended that they will need to be earned at some point and will be able to be re-assigned.
