The furthest I could see it being taken is allowing one extra slot for out of battle moves (like Surf, Fly, etc.) that can't be used in-battle, just to combat the need for HM slaves.
I agree with him, the 4 moves formula has always been successful cos it helps focus on the strategic element in competitive battles.

It has never changed, and never should change.
