For me as a player this looks ok. As you said this is the kind of thing that makes playing with randart intresting. It's not like you got 28 robes or something.
Fizzix would also need to print the randart spoiler over several dozen games and analyse the stats - that should show a convergence between the number of sustains in the standard set and the number in a randart set.

It is true that multiple sustains occur less often though - I'll make a note to address that.
