Nearly all problems in computer science are not complicated, but instead, are bounded by hardware costs tolerable by the end consumer of the application (the imputed price). Most innovation takes place in either adapting to new hardware capacity (software generations) or adapting to new hardware capability (user interface improvements). But the number of ‘problems’ we solve in computer science is still a manageable set, small enough to roughly refer to as design patterns.
Furthermore the value of your earning capacity (working in the industry) is determined by your ability to learn and dispose of ideas, not by your expanding specialization in ideas.
(Personally, I would do it anyway. lol)
