I alluded to this in my last post, but I felt I should make it clear for people who didn’t read behind the cut:

A lot of information around the net – including my own Inscription guide, currently – says that Scribes will be getting an extra Major Glyph slot that no-one else gets.

This is no longer true – at least as far as I can determine. The trainers no longer offer it as an ability, it’s been deleted from WoWhead’s WotLK subsite, and there’s been no official reference to it for a long time.

Unless it’s put back in in a late-breaking change, I think it’s fairly conclusive that the extra glyph slot for Scribes has gone the way of the dodo.

There’s a new version of the Inscription Guide, Version 1.1, available for download, updating the above information and adding a few other refinements and clarifications.

That is unfortunate for the glyphers, just goes to show it all can change before launch.

I remember reading a ways back that it wasn’t going to be an extra inscription slot but that one of the minor slots would be useable as a major slot. But I can’t remember where I read that. >.>

Not completely related, but there is a guide up on the beta forums for inscription that includes the changes in the most recent build:

The dodo is extinct??? /cry

Tbh, I didn’t know that Inscribers would get an extra Major glyph slot. Hardcore PvPers might take it up just for that one buff to some spell which could turn a game on its head.

But as you said, it’s still in Beta, and a lot can happen. Like when I spent my honor and BG marks last week when I heard they were going to reset it, only for Blizzard to overturn their decision! Damn AFK leeching whiners :p
