At this rate DS2 is going to be but a pale shadow of the original.
I don't think simplifying weapon upgrading would dumb it down. I personally think stat adjusting is a pointless concept since you can just farm your way into easy-ville.
I think it would actually be better if we actually had to hunt down upgrades instead of soul farming. Grinding isn't a challenge; it's just tedious in any game. It already has some well placed items to find, so it's just the upgrading they need to change. I'd like to have a Metroidvania style item approach that forces you to find a certain item to deal with a certain challenge instead of just farming up enough souls to adapt any one weapon to anything.
Everything in the game was great as is though. They just need to remove any incentive to grind souls.
