Throwing them out entirely would be a bad idea. The change in the IV system between Gen 2 and Gen 3 was one of the reasons trade between them was incompatible.
Make it easier to see them. I also like the idea of the higher IV stat of one parent tending to take more precedence over over the lower one of the other parent, but I think that would make breeding for certain Hidden Powers an even worse nightmare.

a) Remove them completely. Anything that was dependent on IVs before, like Hidden Power, can be changed at will through an NPC.
2) Allow us to change IVs, similar to the way we can change EVs. IVs would be more difficult and/or expensive to change compared to EVs, but still give us complete customization.
3) Change the range of IVs. Instead of the stupid 0-31 range, give us a 0-15 range like we had back in 1st and 2nd gens, or even a 0-7 range. Reducing the possibilities would make it much easier to get the IVs we want.
And, of course, no matter what happens, allow us to see IVs and EVs, and tell us how they work in-game.
