Excess Relics

I tried searching through the forums to see if there was a post already about this; I could not find anything.
While leveling, running dungeons and through defeating raid bosses we're given relics for our artifacts, they have no value to vendors and if you get one for a rather unfavorable trait, well it's dead space unless you manually delete it.

I was wondering if anything would be implemented, or if it would be a reasonable idea, to be able to "crush" an unwanted relic to harness a small amount of power (could possibly scale with the item level provided/gained from the relic). That way the relics keep their use and value to us, so they'll always be useful.

Also just from this being the alpha, I have no idea how easy it will be to acquire relics OR artifact power for the matter, so this would be a nice option for people who are not blessed with "luck-of-the-drop".
If there was already a post about this similar topic, I apologize, but this idea just came to me when I noticed I had an entire bag of relics and nothing to do with them <3

Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback! We'll be making sure relics can be vendored properly, as well as letting them be disenchanted, in an upcoming build. They're effectively filling the same loot niche as weapon upgrades have in prior expansions, so similar treatment makes sense.
