Yes, but if Riot's looking to nerf Ignite, this is as good a place as any. I'm not claiming that Ignite has suddenly become OP; it's been extremely popular (and posibly OP) for a while now.

It's true that a lot of the spell Masteries outshine the other Masteries: it's almost always a good idea to pick up the associated Masteries for your Summoners.
Still, the Ignite Mastery is very nice, even in comparison to some others.
Extreme example: what if it were something like 5s lower cooldown? You'd probably still see Ignite taken a lot, but it might make it less mandatory.
