Yes they can be augmented, i've tested.
My guess is there will be crafted ones as well as BiS items (non-recipe) that drop from ID.
There will be a new equipment slot for one seal- tested a little bit with the seals on the pts.
There is no dexterity seal at the moment on pts.
So basically, using my Mage as an example, there's a new Craftable Seal, that gives a base stat of +13 int, which can be augmented with a Flawless Etherialite (~7int?) and then have a Blazing Recondite\Intelligence Runeshard added for +9sp\+10int?
Not complaining, as I like more stats. I guess I'm just trying to figure out what the reason behind why these are going to be implemented?

I *really* hope it's BoE and doesn't penalize you for choosing the "wrong" profession (See the MMO that cannot be named)
Otherwise you're going to see a good chunk of the min maxers rerolling profs. to get "the right one" ugh.

The fact that the mats are cross profession is nice though. Armorsmithing seal is mining and runecrafting for instance.
From what ive seen testing these seals - we dont lose them if they are replaced with a new seal! The old one goes back in to your inventory...So for me as a rogue i can carry a str and a stam seal and switch them out when needed
