Is this actually true? I thought blows per turn were also affected by clvl, which is a pretty important quantity for a melee-type. Maybe I'm thinking of oldangband or other variants or something.

I personally think XP penalties are silly, even in variants where they have a very noticeable effect (see poschengband.) This is a minor annoyance in Vanilla though IMO, since you end up farming a ton of XP regardless just trying to level up your equipment. (Hello, dragon pits.)
