There are always some people breaking social rules. I feel any kind
of laws feeble excuse for limitations if they completelly prevent use
of certain magic type or unless they are bound to magic itself.

If my thoughts about magic are true then gods created magic and
they can't add any bans without destroying purpose of magic
(which is to upkeep everything). I already (barely) agreed with
those healer/chaos symbol limitations because you can easily
exlpain it so that gods of different spheres created different sym
bols to control magic and they don't necessarily fit together.

It's up to players and their society to make limits for magic using
but people should be still able to break against those social rules
and use whatever magic they wish to even if it means exile or
similar punishment...

...and as people already answered to you, we have only two
magic systems divine magic which comes from gods and has
nothing to do with normal magic (which in my vision is only
tool created by them) and symbolic magic which concists
of three different ways to imitate true command symbols of
the Gods.
