One of Shadowrun's earliest fluff book Grimoire shows their inexperiance. I'm not sure how much playtesting these rules went through but it clearly wasn't enough as there was barely a single new concept that wasn't either horribly underpowered or game breaking (mostly the former thankfully). Later additions dealt with the expansion of magic rules significantly better.
