I think it will be much like back in '04/'05, we'll all be clueless about the true nature of the damage formulas and how skills affect certain spells etc.

Since we have the concept of the parser now, as well as the die hard min/maxers who will clamor for them, I think we'll have a MUCH shorter window of innocence. What would be nice is an in-game parser so the PS3/360 people have at least some way other then pencil & paper to figure out things.
FFXI has bred a new kind of MMO player. We wont rest until we figure every last formula, drop table and rates, DoT / TP chart, and optimum strategy for each event.

Monks do it with their hands.
Scholars do it in the classroom.
Puppetmasters do it with dolls.
Ninjas do it and then disappear.
Thieves do it then run away.
