Of course, only Delcatty (Or something with Delcatty-esque stats) would have Normalize. But it gives you a reason to use Delcatty. Currently, Normalize is a weird, silly, easily stoppable gimmick. Giving it this buffed normalize would still be a gimmick, but it'd make it have a niche of having perfect coverage. It would still be able to fulfill its Thunder Wave on Ground types thing it currently does, but it does get Work Up and Calm Mind for boosting, alongside Normalized STAB on Return, Double Edge, Ice Beam, Solarbeam, Thunder, and Blizzard).I don't know, I think having it be on Delcatty balances out how awesome of an ability it would be. It's a similar case with Simple; it's an awesome ability, but its users? Not so much, which keeps it in check.
Either way, this is closer to Theorymonning/CAP right now, and it'll probably not happen, it's just something I think'd make the ability actually good.
