They'll probably nerf some stats in PVP or something, since some people may die in less than a second.
Yeah, they'll probably remove the gear death penalty/any death penalties for PvP, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I think they'll do something where they balance out the stats itself for everybody in the arena and make it so certain weapons (such as cold) have no chance to freeze/stun.

-- I'd love for PvP to use different gears. Preferably ones that have stats that would only be useful in PvP (like if they were to add a resilience stat, which is an extra flat out %damage reduction from other players) that can't be looted from mobs. Instead a points system where you exchange points won from matches in order to purchase PvP-centered gear. That way we can cut out the RMAH from this half of the game.
This is an excellent idea, and I agree with it. It also would be nice if they had PvP levels that took a while to level up (such as how 59-60 takes in PvM would be like level 1-2 takes in PvP [with a level cap of 20 or so]); I'm not sure of the bonuses, but things such as extra banner customization would be nice.

I don't know. This'll be interesting how it plays out.
Like I said in the original post, originally PvP will probably just be an arena tack on. I'm sure they'll release extra PvP options and stuff later down the road via a patch, and probably other extra stuff with future expansions (I don't have the source, but it was basically stated that it was planned to have around 3 expansion packs).

Once you have the gear you need/want and conquer Inferno, the game is pretty much over at that point as it is now (I'm still in Act I of Inferno but I do feel that I have already got my money's worth of entertainment). That is, if you don't decide to do hardcore or make other characters. So yeah, it is pretty nice to see that other people share the same enthusiasm for PvP as I.
