I'm a desperate altholic, and having alts is good and incentivised in this game, but for optimising the gear progression  it is essential to reserve a character slot for a Negative Karma Alt, character purposely in a sub par status for the sole reason of de-level items for enchanting, so I feel that character slot is effectively wasted.

I'd like there would be an alternative way to do that. If we think about the matter when we are building FS we often have to "burn" DUO/TRI/etc in ad-hoc extremely adverse enchanting setups with the intent of increasing our FS above certain milestone numbers, this effectively will result most of the times (if our strategy was successful) in more FS and in the item de-levelled, so...

...  this is de-facto already similar to having an on-demand de-level option!

Pity that its usage it is limited only to TRI+ items, while to build FS we constantly need to use often +14 items. Therefore the need to reserve a character slot for that sole function.
This is for me a waste, because I cannot effectively enjoy a character in a slot which maybe I paid for, or that I might enjoy to try to play.
This is a waste also for the publisher too, for I as any player I guess, wouldn't spend money ever on that characters buying extras for him: costumes, inventory expansions, weight increase, etc, because I already know that I won't effectively use it, other that for dying repeatedly over and over, and who cares what he is wearing...

So why not having directly an option to de-level an item intentionally without having to go through all the fuss of baby growing a mostly unused negative karma alt?
What if we could call the Black Spirit or go to the Blacksmith and just find an option that with a simple push of a button delevel our "unlucky" new +15 reblath back to +14 and let us play instead all our characters like they should? 

What would effectively change? Nothing, we would do that anyway but otherwise with the negative karma alt, only  this time the game mechanics would be then unencumbered by this soft hack that has become a common use, and the game experience would be just better, so why not?

I did, sadly had to delete my 56 ninja, but this is not especially about me, why do we have to buy a slot for a character we don't play and that we use only to hack the enchant system?

Couldn't they just give an option to go to any NPC, let's say the repair NPC: "Delevel my item", pay even a silver fee, thank you, good bye, go to enchant, repeat.

 

And use character slots for what they are for.

I see where you are coming from, but ultimately it is your choice to decide how you use your slots. 

Some people choose to have a red alt, some choose to have noobie alt (to avoid pvp), some choose to have one for gardening, some choose to have one for fishing, some choose to have one for training, some people just want  a free slot at all times so that they can make a temporary alt.

You are not forced to have a red alt, you chose to. If anything maybe the issue is with the enchanting system in itself and I feel like maybe you should suggest something along those lines instead.
