Derakon is on a distinguished road
Because risk means that very quickly nobody bothers to use ID by use at all, favoring instead buying ID scrolls / staves and identifying every item before even considering wearing / using it.

The move now is to go towards more mixed-blessing items, which penalize you in some fashion in exchange for benefiting you in other ways. The old Potion of Clumsiness is now spread out across all of the gain-one / lose-one stat potions, which have a chance of permanently decreasing your Dexterity...
