Saying normal as in these proposed tires of mine run out of grip at about the same rate as those in use now.
Yes don't lock up is part of the required skill set. I just think the current tires are too easy to flat spot. A more resistant tire should be able to lock a bit more without flat spotting or at least without flat spotting quite as badly. This might allow the drivers to be a little more aggressive and create some more passing opportunities.
From my understanding flatspotting, or rather susceptibility to flatspotting is directly proportional to tyre compound. So the softer the tyre, the more easily it will flatspot when locked. So as far as I know, you can't really engineer in a 'flatspot resistance' without making the tyre compound harder...
Besides, it seems they have "fixed" the tyres, and there does not seem to be as much of a 'cliff' anymore... which is a bit of a disappointment.. they seemed to get closer and closer to the Bridgestones in terms of durability and wear/degredation, as the season has progressed.
