If I we're to change it....
a) the books would be much longer
b) we would learn about dr. cables past
c) shay would make more appearences as the hero instead of a background character

If I were to change it I would Include some different POVs like in Uglies:Shay, David, Dr. Cable(coming up with her evil plan); Pretties:Shay, Zane, Dr. Cable, Croy;Specials:Shay, David, Astrix, Dr.Cable, Zane on his deathbed; Extras:Tally(during the first part of book), Shay, some of the Extras.

Yeah, but that would also make it confusing, with the suddent shift of mind.

I think that's brilliant.
But Mara, Midnighters wasn't confusing, and it had different POV's.
