Ya, there are definitely some things that need clarification....
They will only be paperweights if that's your choice. I have enough 1E material that I still haven't used to keep me going for a long time. And I can always go back to developing my own AP's, like we did in the old days.
So no need for me to move too 2E.

If your comfortable answering this....do they "have" to attack with their Ioun stones ? or can they still hurl other objects ?

Hm.....well that sounds rather lackluster.....Can you give us any more ?
That's me and my group, and I already bought enough stuff to play for the next ten years and beyond. We just started in October 2017, and we are having a blast. I have been collecting material for almost five years little by little hoping it would eventually get put to good use. Now it is.
That's more or less what pulled me out of being very upset at the news.I'm old enough....I have enough unused material to probably get me through the rest of my gaming life ( have bought just about everything that's come out) :P
I originally had plans to still look at 2E, was trying to keep an open mind. But I've seen enough of the material to know I'm not interested in it.

Actually at the time I didn't :P
As soon as the term "universal" comes into play.....I loose all interest. Now keep in mind what I have seen so far is more than enough to make me loose interest....I started out willing to look at the playtest....but the spoilers that have been released so far, move to far from 1stE for me to be interested. I will probably buy splat books dealing with things that have not been covered in 1E (Arcadia and such) and convert it to 1stE....but beyond that I have lost all interest.

Maybe....but I'm not moving to the new edition, so won't do me much good.
I suppose if they come out with Arcadia info...I could buy it and convert to 1E.
I say it again. A reboot is not inevitable.
I hate to break it to you, as I share your opinion that "Pathfinder is so critically linked to 3.5 that a reboot would be antithetical to the basic premise of Pathfinder."
However the truth is, it is inevitable.
The reason Pathfinder was based on/critically linked to 3.5, is that it was created as an effort to preserve and develop 3.5....which had many devoted followers (myself among them).
That worked for them for ten + years......however, they have now set their sites elsewhere.
All the wining and complaining in the world is not going to change the fact that they are looking to capture a different target audience than the old 3.5 fans.
Our time is done evidently ;)
I'm not good at evaluating class mechanics. What's wrong with the Shifter? (Please keep it civil).
In it's current incarnation, it doesn't come even close to what people were expecting (a better shape shifter than the Druid).
Additionally, some of the most flavorful/desirable Archetypes....are more or less unplayable (unless your a masochist)
Fixes are actually simple and rather obvious....but given the current focus, I don't imagine they will be taking the time to address them.
House-ruled versions are the best option at this point.

Naw....I'm likely not moving to 2E....so I'll take what I can get for 1E ;)
I actually like the idea of them being down a couple of members....creates a vacuum that "up and coming" Runelords could step into :P
It's rather frustrating that it would take very little to make the Oozemorph playable...yet they apparently don't want to make it playable.
The fixes are simple....
Allow it to merge equipment.
And I see no reason Psychic spell shouldn't work in Ooze form.
You then have a class/archetype that is worth playing.

Yes, that's exactly what I want.Maybe not much need for a lot more classes....
But there is still plenty of material to cover, and now it appears it won't be.

In honesty, I would prefer the game rules for torture were "It doesn't work, the subject will just say whatever they think you want them to say". Since that seems the most realistic model for it.
But still a viable tool to make your point :P Which is why it has such a strong historical usage :P
