Smoot this is something they were always going to have. Right now they are testing to see how things are going to work out. It only hurts more because there are only 2 campaigns going on with the same rule sets.
As someone who has 6 accounts I can tell you even with them I'm not going to be able to bring much in as I have all Crafter with gear that needs to come in with books. I have to think and plan this out right figure out what is important to me and the guild. By now most guild have members who are way beyond geared that there is really not much they need to bring into this campaign and can go right to farming for the Spring bonus.
