Well, functionally in Vanilla right now you have lightweight, medium-weight, and heavyweight sharp and blunt weapons. There are no other differentiations made, and only priests care about sharp vs. blunt, so effectively there are 3 categories of weapon. The v4 approach allows weapons with similar weights and damage dice to nonetheless vary in how balanced/hefty they are, such that a 5-pound club and a 3-pound dagger will be appealing to different character types even if they both deal 1d4 damage.

I'm not certain what you're saying about the character, though?
