Agreed in 'normal' games - I think it became an issue in FAAngband due to 'thrall mode', where you start at the equivalent of 2900ft with limited equipment...

(Curse Armor/Weapon being nasty is a good point - in FAA thrall mode, scrolls are inherently risky as reading one un'IDed scroll of Summon Monster/Teleport/TL can be fatal...)
