There is likely a change going to occur regarding restrictions, but I would never advise banking on it, simply for assurances sake.
As is, I had once attempted to play a Hutt due to the very fun IC possibilities. Unfortunately, starting off new, playing a Hutt is pretty much unbearable under most circumstances. The inability to fly a bulk, any fighter, any freighter, means you're flying usually slow capitals, and are incredibly limited in what you can/can't do.
The experiment lasted 3 months maybe before I said forget it and respawned. If you have the patience, it may be for you, but I'd warn anyone against it prior to.
