with vanilla id.
Unequivocally bad equipment and consumables make ID-by-use too risky to attempt. That's why modern Vanilla's cursed gear is mixed-blessing instead. I'd leave the bad gear out. *Identify* and Elemental Attacks might possibly be worth keeping. The use case for *Identify* is a little odd -- you'd want to use it on an item with a lot of unknown runes, I guess. Elemental Attacks I assume brands your melee with an element? That used to be on Vanilla's Rings of Acid/Fire/etc. and was removed because it made certain weapons (particularly the Glaive of Pain) much too powerful.

Edit2: Perhaps healers & master rogues? Maybe master rogue should leave level when it steals? Is there an easy way to do that?
You can find the code that handles the EAT_GOLD hit effect, and change it to invoke the Banishment effect on the monster after gold is stolen. I believe this simply amounts to deleting the monster from the level.
