The bigger issue is, as you said, that the trades aren't fair. They'd probably be better off if they just gave a buff to your character, instead of affecting the glyphs. It would be a little less flavorful, but it would allow better granularity.
So something like:
-1 HP per level/+10% attack
-15% attack/+2 MP
-1 MP/ +1.5 HP per level
Having all three be one-for-one is a nice idea, and it would be great aesthetically if it worked out, but the three resources work in far to different ways for them to be balanced preps.
Also making preps have less of an individual impact means players are much less 'locked in' to a particular strategy; only nudged a little, with room to bail if the RNG turns up something totally contrary to what their preps have made the character.
The way i see it, preps like these should give the player the sense that 'i am going to focus on melee', rather than ' I have to pick up a CYDSTEPP early or it's an instant restart'.
