As it currently stands, the number of universal combat arts is a bit limited. Swords get Wrath Strike and Grounder, Lances get Tempest Lance and Knightkneeler, Axes get Smash and Helm Splitter, Bows only get Curved Shot, and Gauntlets get the most at Fading Blow, Rushing Blow, and Healing Focus.

While combat arts aren't that important, I believe that the low amount of universal combat arts is an unnecessary restriction on customization that could be alleviated by allowing characters to obtain the other combat arts (excluding relic arts of course) in some manner, such as manually teaching them.

In addition, I believe that manually teaching specific combat arts would be a compromise for the people who believe that units should be unique, as it takes additional effort/resources/time for one unit to learn a combat art compared to another who already has it in their list.

Why did they give bows only one universal combat art

Nah. That's like saying characters should teach each other spells.

I would rather have arts and spells remain as they are, to distinguish characters beyond their average stats and skill affinities. There comes a point where customization goes too far, making every character interchangeable.

I think the game is more interesting if a character like Ashe can have a Killer art not available by the usual gods of growth, etc.

That was my main gripe with FF7, the only appreciable distinction between characters was their situational Limit Breaks.

While I do see your point, I believe there's a difference between inherent magical abilities and physical skills that theoretically anyone could use.
