It's quality relative to current equipment that matters, not absolute quality.
Agreed, and to extend -- if I'm at dlvl 5 with only starting gear, kill Bullroarer, and get a nice enchanted dagger or Gloves of Free Action or something, I'm vastly more likely to survive to make it to dlvl 95, where good items are all over the place and my equipment is already about as good as it's going to get.

Even if you're confident in your survival, getting good items early greatly improves the pace of your game. I don't really want to spend any more time in the sub-1000' area than I have to.
