However one problem with excluding scrolls
    A system that temporarily removed the CE AC bonus when you cast a spell would include scrolls as casting for that purpose; scrolls are already considered casting for purposes such as Concentration and ASF.

    Well there's a deeper design problem here:
    AC is not as valuable in DDO as it should be.

    The developers' desire to keep CE from giving Wizards an easy longterm AC bonus is based on the idea that +5 AC is a useful defense against enemy melee and ranged attacks. However, that is not the case currently, and the majority of high level characters (especially if they can cast spells) would not notice if you gave them a +5/-5 AC modifier that swapped every hour.

    The game would be improved if AC could be made more consistently meaningful, and a great many suggestions have been made to that effect. But the devs have made very little effort in that direction, and the longer they wait the harder it will be to change anything.

    So at present, allowing characters totally unrestricted spellcasting while using the Defensive Fighting and Combat Expertise feats would actually be acceptable. Only if AC was improved might that be overpowered.
