Sure, every now and then it was funny to party with a NIN/BLM who used their elemental spells to line up with their Ninjutsu. Things like that were entertaining, especially if the NIN could tank well by damage without provoke. It was more comforting to join a group of strangers with typical subjobs since it was assumed they'd be able to perform their roles to expectation. With friends, it was easier to let them do whatever and have a laugh. It just got worrisome on a job like WHM that is expected to keep everyone alive, where instead the person is focused on DD'ing at the expense of everyone's lives. I think damage dealers could get away with having any setups--less so for a core role like a healer.
