I disagree on your determinism for races, at least for Angband proper. There are only two crieria:
* is it fun? (Half-elf fails.)
* is it distinct from other races? (Gnome and hobbit fail.)
I actually like playing kobold. Low EXP penalty, and no messing with swap ring of rPoison.
Another possibility:
Wood elf can have intrinsic archery bonus by level. Huge for mage, but only incremental for ranger.
