Completed support items are rough on supports

I just hopped into a practice game out of curiosity and the nerf to minion gold still exists after you fully upgrade the item. So not only do you lose the gold income from the tribute/spoils passive but also you are still penalized from CSing. For a support that's technically able to defend the base after an inhib drops, {{champion:63}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:25}} that's pretty brutal for a player and a team. So you'd have to either give up the ability to ward and sell the item, or your team might risk losing a ton of gold. Did riot think this through? Did riot not understand that by adding AD support items, more types of champs might want to go into the "support" role? That's really odd to me. On one hand riot made an itemization change that basically says anyone can technically support now. On the other, they go nope. If riot wants to keep going on this route, maybe they need to remove warding from support items and let players upgrade yellow trinket somehow.
