then why have 'magic'?  wouldn't it be better to have the crafting skills to actually make those things? 

instead of yellow magic why not have a person able to make black powder and use that to create explosives?
instead of blue magic why not allow the person to reinforce walls with metals or other support structures?
instead of white magic why not have a few different healing herbs that have different effects when used on a person?

if done this way you'd have the same effect, but be able to progress from antiquity to modern times since these things start the basics of science...
or do I just not understand role playing games? heh

Because, I was thinking that when we reach future, "Nanites" would let the players do "Magic" things, at the cost of MP. It could steadily evolve from Magic, to Science, to Nanokinetics as the players progress.

Likewise, Alchemy would evolve into Pharmaceuticals, to Nanoinjections. Jewelery to Prosthetics to Bionics/Cybernetics.

Think of Mana as more of "Concentration," at least for the modern era. You can have the energy to build stuff, sure, but when it's something that takes a lot of thought to do, you have to concentrate to do it right.
