Ranger shouts should have ammo

While I like the shouts and use them frequently, I think it would be great to add the ammunition system to them just as warriors received during last tuesdays balance patch. I feel the cooldowns are a bit too long w/o it. Also sic'em and strength of the pack are imo important for damage whether it be in pvp or pve.

From the latest 'balance' patch for warrior:
"On My Mark!": The cooldown of this skill has been synchronized between game modes and will now use the lower 25-second ammunition recharge time in all game modes. Reveal duration has been increased from 4 seconds to 6 seconds.
"For Great Justice!": This skill now uses ammunition, with 5 seconds between activations and a 25-second ammunition recharge time.
"Shake It Off!": This skill now uses ammunition, with 5 seconds between activations and a 25-second ammunition recharge time. This skill has been split between game modes and will now use a 50-second cooldown in PvP and WvW while cleansing 6 conditions.

All of these shout skills were lowered to less than rangers average 30-35 sec shout cooldown as well as getting the ammo system.

    The only Shout that would need ammo is "Guard!", but even then, I don't think Shouts need much more changes.

    MFW I see Blood Magic necro rezzing like gods. "Search and Rescue!" got annihilated.

    No I don't think shouts should get ammo they would become pretty op.

    Some skills that should get ammo is dagger offhand, glyphs, maybe even traps, or sigints except for stone, or stances except for dolyack.

    Could make the argument that warriors didnt need it either. Their level of condition cleanse now is borderline insane. I compared it to warriors shouts because warrior shouts are largely single target, ranger shouts are single target. While elementalist, necromancer and guardian shouts are mostly aoes.
