Since ZOS has basically stated that their position on trading Crown Store items for in-game currency (gold) is allowed since they are both considered "in game items" with no real world value, shouldn't the next step be to allow those Crown Store items to be traded in-game like other items? This would protect players who are looking to trade their Crown Items for gold (and vice versa) from scammers, since right now there is basically no way to guarantee that a trade will not be fraudulent.

I understand that the current policy is basically to be careful and understand that it's a "buyers beware" market, but I don't have to have that same worry when say I'm trading my Apostle Chest motif for gold. Both players can see what the other is trading, how much of it, and if that player has "agreed" (locked) their selection before the trade is completed.
This would mean that the current system, where after purchasing something on the Crown Store it is immediately bound to your account, would have to change. It could even be changed to a system similar to the one with the monster helm motifs being dropped in dungeons; if you purchase something in the store you get an item/book/scroll in your inventory and if you use it then it will bind that item to your account but if not then it can be traded/mailed/sold in the guild store like the monster helm motif. So it would basically just replace the current gift system.
