Kits for dual and multi-classed characters?

edited February 22 in 2.5 patches feedback
I can understand the "one kit" limitation.

But will it ever be possible in a future patch, if there ever is one, to apply a kit to the SECOND class of a dual-class character, if the first one is a plain class? Or to apply a kit to one class of a multi-classed character? Gnomish illusionists already exist, but I'd love to dual Imoen to Specialist Mage rather than General Mage - as in original BG1 where she could go to Conjurer (or other specialist mage if it required a 16 in Con or Dex as well as her Intelligence.) Or possibly even dual her to Wild Mage.

Or perhaps imagine a Cleric/Assassin - a true priest of Bhaal (or Cyric, who supplanted him). I'm thinking Tiax would be a good one for this! Or Sarevok in TOB, thanks to his high stats, being able to dual to Assassin or Necromancer or something...

Any other combinations that might be interesting - or, by contrast, any that might be overpowered? Would a Cleric / Wild Mage set off wild surges even with cleric spells, or be able to use Nahal's Reckless Dweomer to cast a cleric spell instead of a mage spell? (Probably not in both cases, divinity is more predictable than arcanity.)

    There's a very reliable mod that allows an unkitted character to dual-class into a kit.

    the choice to make it so you couldn't dual class into a class kit was a deliberate choice from the original devs who made SoA, i remember reading an article about it, and they said this was intentional since you could make some outrageously strong dual class kits, that is probably also the reason why they got rid of the bg1 dual over to specialist mage option

    plus the class kit thing was more of a bg2 implementation than anything, hence the reason why classes in bg1 could dual into a specialist mage since a specialist mage wasn't really considered a "kit" per se
