Should dispelling skills be increased?

Most professions now have buff enhancing skills, but the only professions that eliminate buffs are Chieftain and Mage. Should we add more dispel skills to other professions?

It wouldn't hurt to have 1 more class on each side that has that kind of a skill, but the problem is which classes they should be. Personally I atleast think that straight up giving any current class that ability would probably push them towards being a bit too strong, because as of right now all the classes are fairly balanced outside of a couple skills maybe needing some tweaking. Maybe in the form of a talent that switches some other ability to a dispell?

I would like to see more buff/debuff manipulation skills. Maybe not dispelling but something similar like a debuff that blocks incoming buffs for some time, or a skills that switch active buffs/debuffs between the character and the target. They can also be done as support version - transfer buffs from an enemy to a selected ally. They would need to introduce a skill mechanic that requires selection of 2 targets (which honestly opens up the possibility for so many new ideas for kind of "next-gen" skills)

Something like that should be fairly simple to do, unless theres some technical problems I'm not aware of. You could just make a skill that works in 2 stages. Use the skill on an enemy to steal a buff, like any other offensive skill, and then if a buff is succesfully stolen it'll change into a buff skill that can only be used on a party member. Something like that would be cool if it was done correctly.
