Y'know, the first thing i thought of with the mention of stagamancers, was the idea that a debate is nothing more then a big stage =p

Maybe, maybe not... we don't know enough about magic to know if this is serious concern
As others have mentioned, croakamancy entering the life axis would allow naughtymancy to cover all 3 fields... as it stands, each major grouping of magic is divided amongst the three fields of life, motion and matter, with NONE of them having the same combinations... One might have to ask, does naughtymancy gaining the power of "life" just mean casters need to think about their system some more, or could it be that this leads to a serious flaw in the balance of magic in erfworld. Add a foreign element to an alien environment and you can throw the ecosystem into chaos

There seems to be something about the decrypted that is morally iffy, but the more I think about it, it's only iffy for us Earthers. On Erfworld, the higher-ups have complete loyalty of underlings, as Maggie told Parson. So then, what's the big deal, in Erf terms, with the Decrypted?
Well two things as far as i can see...
first off, loyalty of this nature has always applied to rulers and sides; Wanda is neither, she is a caster, she is an underling... the rules of loyalty and duty do not apply to her
Second of all, the loyalty towards wanda seems to be more extreme then what we have seen with other rulers. Units have a loyalty stat, and low loyalty could lead to the unit turning or betraying their ruler; and while units are bound by duty to serve their rulers, they do not have to like them... even Ansom has shown signs of having hatred and frustration with Stanely despite serving him loyally. But the decrypted seem more extreme... Ansom has come to outright love Wanda, unaroyal's heir seemed to gush over her mistress as much as ansom, and even the unaroyal chief warlord went from wishing for the queen's safety, to angrily yelling at her along side Ansom in mere moments after decryption. Seems much more extreme then what erfworlders generally feel...
