How do legal traits and magic items that require you to worship Aroden work?
Things can be legal without being usable. The Goblins of golarion traits that require you to be a goblin were legal for almost a year before the 30 goblin boons came out. There are boons out there for 2 years now that have options that are only legal for kobolds. Maybe pathfinder 100 will open veer ratio of Aroden or worship for non Devine? Maybe a feat or archetype down the line will allow you to count as worshiping a dead God as long as you don't get spells? There are a few other options I can think of.... Like a boon for clearing an old Aroden temple, Iomadae gives you power as if you worshiped Aroden. But just because an item might not work for a character now, doesn't mean It never will. And having it legal from the start means they don't need to find all the books where such an item was and add it to the resources later.
