At the moment it is possible for ram drivers to zoom out and keep that birds eye view even when leaving the ram.
This can be utilized easily to kill any defense inside a keep with catapults, just enter a ram (e.g. on the guardtower rams closeby), zoom out, put up your catapult and target defenders/catapults inside the sieged keep.
The defenders don't have any chance to get a similar advantage, as they cannot set up rams inside their own keep without "valid doors" available. Adding to this the layout of many keeps which only allow very few catapults being set inside (for example Beno, Crauch, Bled only have one spot for a single catapult) and palintones far away from the front door which cannot be aimed at anything before the door is open, defense with siege equipment is very hard and often impossible.

Additionally to leading to a huge disadvantage for defenders the zoomed view can be utilized for open field rvr because the field of view is just so much bigger than with "regular" view, almost like a "ghetto radar".

Are there any plans to remove the ram zoom or at least resetting the driver point of view to normal when leaving the ram?

The last time this was brought up the answer was no, but that was quite awhile ago.
