Surge will open up specific PS roles and make different roles within champions more viable and distinguish them as such. Think of Kayle, Teemo, Fizz.
In LoL, Ignite generalizes. It does not distinguish specific PS roles.
Especially if you decrease the number of Summoner Spells.
You can turret dive with heal at the moment as well, so I don't quite see your logic.
Turret defense increases YOUR armour against Turrets, not the Turret's armour. Even if it did increase the turrets armour, maybe Heimerdinger would become viable again I fail to see this as a bad thing.
Other than Kayle, Teemo, Fizz who can use surge properly? Cho'gath? Jax? The thing is, even though surge can be used by these guys, ignite does a better job of it.
