They should, IMO, lock out deathstreaks @ lvl 80, no prestige since they are no longer a n3wb, they are a experienced player and should get better on their own, the way it should be.
I like the sound of that idea

If a player is activating their Deathstreak, are they really going to pose a problem? I mean, obviously this player isn't doing too hot if they're dying 4+ times in a row. Why worry about a lil' ol' Deathstreak?
Painkiller is out, which was the worst Deathstreak in my opinion.

Final Stand is still in, Dead Man's Hand is gonna kill me in CQC with my shotgun, the guy with Revenge will have a constant rader with someone on it, Hallow Point is just plain stupid and Jucied is the only Deathstreak I don't mind.

This is my opinion on deathstreaks:
Deathstreaks don't make bad players do better, it's just encourages them to do bad.
If IW really wanted to help new players, combat training would have been the better option. After being a terrible player in MW2 & COD4, my hours spent in combat training on Black Ops has made me a better player.
Also, isn't COD Elite suppose to help bad/new players?
If deathstreaks are here to stay, disable deathstreaks once you reach Level 80, No Prestige (as David has mentioned)

Juiced - Dumb.
Revenge - Campers stop camping. Chances are, the people who rage about this are the ones trying to avoid UAV's and whatnot at all times. It's not like this Deathstreak gives the player an automatic route to just walk up and shoot you in the face. Honestly, this will be the Deathstreak I have on all my classes.
Final Stand - I've personally never had a problem with any form of Final Stand in any CoD. Is it really that hard to kill someone laying around with 1% HP?
Martyrdom/Deadman's Hand - It's said that explosive damage in this game is toned down. I'm not really worried about these.
Hollow Points - Could pose a problem, but a player dying 5 times to activate this streak probably wouldn't get the most out of it anyway. It'll maybe get them one or two kills, but I don't expect someone who just died 5 times to suddenly start dominating the game.

I agree that Juiced was dumb. They should have kept Lightweight as a normal perk, or a profeciency with ALL weapons.
I know that Dead Man's Hand is going to be abused. Let's hope Blast Shield helps.
The other perks are fine I guess. I am not complaining about Final Stand either--but the question I have with that deathstreak, is will reviving be automatic?

I die to DMH maybe once or twice a week. So its not an issue for me. I die to martrydom maybe twice or thrice a week so not a problem for me. I died to final stand maybe 5 times a week, so not really a big problem. Not nearly as much as how weak the nades are in this game now or the grenade launchers like the xm25. Stop running in close all the time. Pay attention to what streaks the players are using during the match and when you see them again you know to be aware of what they may have if they have died too many times recently. Simple as that to deal with them. They do not need to be nerfed at all.

Great idea pre-release got ignored I see. Lvl 80 > no more death streaks would have been fine. Though it's nonsense that there are lethal death streaks like Finals stand and dead man's hand stealing kills and giving unfair deaths constantly. New players need it, no it's trolls who need it. New players can get better via survivor mod, so that logic fails, nobody deserves to die to final stand or dead man's hand. Remove that crap, it's just complete BS. Especially dead man's hand and final stand as a 4 deathstreaks is a joke, it's much better than the other 4 deaths, deathstreaks.
