The difference in items only really comes into play the closer the two opposing teams are in skill level.
Also, superior runes are not necessarily better, since they come with -100 life. Chances are, most runes that are used in pvp are minor runes and superior vigor (which really isn't all that different from a minor vigor really).
Also, even with a chance to trigger said modifier, you start relying on luck. Why do your think the inhertant chance to miss with attacks was removed?

Etc. etc. etc.
As well, chance for criticals is luck and especially important with axes (Since they have such a wide damage range) and there are other random numbers in play as well (Like blind, price of failure, ward against melee, aegis, etc.).
I'd say random chance is already well entrenched in the weapon (And entire game) setup, and adding new things wouldn't hurt anything...it would just allow even more options and cool things you could set up to do :)
Plus, on the better gear thing having the best advantage: It doesn't matter when the difference actually shows up, they do have the advantage. If the modifiers were balanced appropriately however, they wouldn't provide an innate advantage, just a different strategy option (I'd go with fire doing a 1-2 degen burn for one to three seconds as an affect not a condition, for instance...rather than the current burning being given to the weapon. That way it wouldn't screw over people with fragility, and would be a dependable, nifty, but not terribly strong side effect of the weapon. I do prefer the things you can rely on over the % activation, but I was saying that you don't have to give weapons effects 100% of the time if it makes it unbalanced)

Adding a shocking part to a weapon, from what I have seen, does not add armour pen to it.
