Having all/most magic all of sudden hurt casters just for casting would be narrative/world shattering in its effects and changes, moreso than even the contentious introduction of Resonance. What happened, did every setting get hit with a Spell

Your argumentation is pretty solid, and i thank you for taking the time to make a calm, strong and deep response.
I agree with you, not in the first message (because you know there are people here talking about the examples and only that), but with the second one.
Golarion has a stablished lore, and a world mechanic system, however, they are changing it and maybe, just maybe, this is the right time to introduce a solid and well planned change as this idea can be, instead of adding "patches" to those parts loosing water. We can think about resonance, for example. It will make the whole world act different around magic, as it will do the addition of goblins as a playable race. Those changes are worldblowing if we look backwards to how things have been done untill now.
IMO, they should take this kind of ideas instead of the ones they are taking in this affairs.
