What about this:
Humans, being the short-sighted "I want it all, right now" bastards that
they are, can be multi-classed but NOT dual-classed. Dandelion-eaters, aka
elves, can dual class, as they are IMO more prone to the "Oh, I've been a
warrior for a hundred years...It's getting boring. I think I'll become a
sculptor or a mage..." line of thought.
Yes, I know it will play havoc with your campaigns.
