Drolems are rare and don't wake up all that easily. Yes, they can deal stupendous amounts of damage and you should avoid them if you lack poison resistance, but I wouldn't stop diving for fear of them.

The resists on Elvenkind armor often aren't worth as much as the stealth bonus, but stealth is one of those things where it's only really useful in certain ranges. If your stealth is terrible, than +1 or +2 isn't going to make a huge difference, and if it's good enough that already nothing wakes up, then again it makes little difference. You want more stealth mostly when you're in that "yellow" range on the character screen, in my experience. Or if you plan to spend a lot of time around sleeping monsters that you really don't want waking up (e.g. sneaking around vaults).
