The main problem with your thread is that you are implying that ''we'' (as in; the entire community) needs GS deconscrution, when you are just frustrated that you wasted valuable materials and would like them back.
I'm sorry this happened to you, but its happened to many people who have tried making double-shard items.
Learn from your mistake, and dont let it happen again, but implying we all need something because you made a mistake is not true.
From what I can remember they are working on GS deconstruction.
I think I saw this on interview to Fernando or somebody else. Can't remember which interview was that though.
And of course, I am not quite sure how its going on.
They may still working on discussing how much ingredients should returned to player.
English is not my primary language, so please excuse my grammar and spelling
And given the new alchemical crafting in U11, I would seriously not hold your breath. U11 items have GS sp/hp bonuses as do the new alchemical items. And the alchemical items allow for more powerful. GS is on its way to becoming 'leveling' gear, cause of its low ML.
If the core reason for Green Steel Deconstruction is that players can make mistakes then an alternate request you might want to make is for the Altars of Invasion/Subjugation/Devastation to use the Barter User Interface.
I'm a believer that the information should be available to our characters, so that from a RP perspective, our characters know how and what they're crafting.
If they can't give us instructions in game (like how a rogue can buy instructions on how to build traps from the vendor) or have an NPC answer questions (like fred does with feats) then the crafting alters should show what ingreds are required like how Turbine is now doing with the new crafting devices (lordsmarch alter, alter of insanity, cove, etc)
Green Steel is one of the most powerful things in the game and can create items and weapons that usually outstrip everything else. It should not be easy and it should not be simple.
I also screwed up my first GS in the exact method described by the OP. I lived with a sub optimal not-quite-a-MIN-II Greataxe for a few years. The only reason I don't have one is Turbine screwed up with update 10 and my GA was caught up in the fix and upgraded for free. :-)
/signed. But not for the reason that the OP gives.
I'm /signed because we're getting replacements for Shroud weapons in U11 and I'd like to see people have a means of getting back some of their Shroud ingredients now that we no longer have a need for a golf bag full of Shroud weapons.
I'd probably keep one or two Shroud weapons on a character that I plan on sending through a TR, but the other characters will end up seeing their weapons just tossed in the bank and ignored.
The only dev to comment on ddocast was a pretty straight, "no, we don't see that happening" type response.
I think getting mats back isn't that important, even larges. The most important thing is either being able to overwrite effects or remove them.
...what he said
2 years ago i was after this like hell, yes
but now... i need and i will craft many more for sure, the only thing thats making it hard for me sometimes:
i made 2 chars where i tried to give a whole GS equipment for fun by using ~5-6 cleansing shards on each of them
also id like to get new cleansing shards anyhow, since im just so shroud bored after all the time and used all i ever earned up lol
no i wouldnt use 3 or more on a single char (i promise^^) but just one more shard would be nice... 20 shrouds bah! i could have taken many more tomes there than i already done ^hehe
deconstruct including the destruction on ings down to the (cleansed) raw item would be ok
but we know it wont happen, so why care ?

Allow greensteel deconstruction, but make it EXTREMELY random. Give it a chance to generate pretty much anything that ever goes into green bag. You might end up with several Glistening Pebbles. Or a pile of Syberis Dragonshards. Or bunch of Adhesive Slimes. Or Pure Shavarath Iron. If you are very lucky, a ready-made Flawless Gem of Escalation. If you are really unlucky, some Mechanical Trap Parts. Etc.

"Of course it is. Are YOU going to question beholder's artistic sense?"
I see nothing wrong if Turbine made deconstruction possible using Turbine Points: Pay little amount (50-200 TP) to unmake your GS and get 50% of the mats back.
This subject is as old as is the GS crafting itself. My suggestion above is nothing new. However, now that Warner Bros is looking for better ways to make their product sell - maybe they rethink this possibility.
