Agree in principle, but what exactly do you have in mind? Poison or confusion?

You can inflict stun in several ways by horn or staff of light (and earlier versions ability), many monsters have a special problem with light and you can inflict morale penalties just by being very bright, cruel blow and slaying weapons produce additional morale penalties + morale penalties by ability + direct attack on morale by song of Elbereth or horn of terror. I.e. you have many more ways to affect monster morale than they have to affect yours.
