Although I would love it if Raven would enhance multiplayer to allow 1st-person sabering, I would be highly surprised if they did. There appears to be other pressing priorities demanding their attention. So, while it is always possible, I wouldn't hold my breath.
But I agree with you - this was something that should have been accounted for and included during the game's design.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players...
