Kinda dumb, IMO. They should reduce effectiveness over a certain %.
EDIT: Or just have stat caps like WoW. cap IAS and then worry about other stats.
I think capping the IAS stat would be best... Though for DH that would screw over a lot of people using 1h bows. The whole point is that 1h bows are faster. At the moment my attack speed is 3.64 shots per second and my friend has 4.10 shots per second.
Just my xbow gives me a nice 2.0 shots per second by itself, then add in an amulet, quiver, 2 rings, gloves and my beckon sail (legendary chest piece). If the helmets, boots, pants and bracers were working I'd get those too.
