Tait Watson posted an update from the public test servers. BioWare will be removing armor weight restrictions from the upcoming Outfit Designer. As we understand it, this will mean that light armor classes can now wear heavy armor etc in the outfit designer and heavy armor classes can wear light armor. Check it out:

We were able to get the change to armor weight restrictions implemented, and it will be available on the PTS with the bug fix build that is going live today.

However, I do want to point out that the armor weight restrictions for the Outfit Designer will be removed as of this update!
Additionally, we will have another update later this week that will have class changes.
