Legendary item buffs in patch 1.0.4 look good!
In a blog post today Blizzard revealed a bit more about their upcoming rework of the legendary system. They are both buffing stats, adding more effects and spiffing up the look of the items. It looks like all weapons gain some sort of particle effect, which is pretty awesome.

Anything else, would have been a dick-move by Blizzard. However, do be aware that legendary items will not be buffed retro-actively. This includes non-IDed items as well, since stats are determined on drop, which we saw with the recent Diablo 3 unID exploit.
All in all a pretty interesting read well worth checking out on the official Blizz forums.
