Besides diminishing the usefulness of support roles, self repair\heal also slows down the game. How much time do people spend ducking behind trees or walls to heal/repair themselves only to fight for 10 seconds and then do it all over again. Stairwell fights become a neverending cycle of people rotating out to the front for 3 seconds, then running back around the corner to heal for 20 seconds. It slows down the game.

Personally i'd like to see it go down more like a 1930's knife fight. 2 gangs meet and its a brawl till the end. Medics and engies can dance around throwing down healing/defensive bots or whatever, commanders give an aoe buff and prioritize targets, grunts mow shit down.
