Some undeservedly late responses, sorry.

The learning spells and books and stuff seems like it wouldn't work in the system, but perhaps if people really wanted the flavor of the wizard there could be some kind of Scroll-a-mancer guy who scribes infinite scrolls in his spellbook and then uses them sparingly or something. Or that could be a prestige class. I don't know. This system will probably work just fine for everyone else though.
Wizards would get a bit more complex, I suppose. The idea Eldan was proposing is that you basically spend the spell points at the time you prepare the spells-- preparing becoming a more literally sort of "pre-casting," where you're limited by your total points, instead of spells slots/level. Or you could do something more like the spirit shaman.

I don't see any problems, except a few with some small bits of math. I know my players would balk at least a little at the calculations present, and I'd have to walk them through it a few times. But that's what spell point per level tables are for, right?

The drawback is that it would devaluate SR a bit and higher level spells would tend to either fumble or hit (but not "be cast successfully and then miss").

A minor point: You might want some rules to limit cantrip spamming. A 30 cantrips per hour limit or something.
Ehh... seems a bit overbroad for a lot of spells. Cantrip spamming... yeah, maybe.

Good point. You're right.
