No idea. I just decided to play the straight guy.
But I do like the idea of trapped items being related to the drop depth...

OK, I'll bite.

This is probably not impossible, but it would take some work. The two most effective means of getting the deepest possible monster in town are:
  1. Read a scroll of Trap Creation, get a "rune of summon foe", walk into the trap or
  2. Polymorph a town monster.
These will both aim to get a monster from level 5, with a potential depth boost of 2 - so max level 7. At first glance, we fail, because the shallowest monster that can summon is at level 10. Luckily (I guess), we can continue polymorphing, and the polymorph level is now 5 + (monster level) / 2, with the potential boost of 2, so second time round our deepest possible monster is 5 + 7/2 (=3 because rounded down) + 2 = 10. Continue in this way until you have a deep enough monster to summon Feagwath (note that polymorph doesn't produce uniques).

I would be interested to hear from anyone who achieved this, or failed to in an interesting manner

Now we know how Morgoth created dragons.

Kidnapped orphans and repeatedly zapped them with wands of polymorph

always accurate

Are the level feelings always accurate? A few times I'm on a level with -8 but nothing I find seems worthy of that after killing every monster and getting every piece of loot. There are no chests, magic mapped the entire area and also detected treasures in the whole place. DL21.

Level feelings don't apply to monster drops and what comes out of chests and scrolls of acquirement, etc. But at DL21 a high treasure level feeling could easily be a scroll or potion. You may have already used it, or it could have been destroyed, or it could be sitting in your inventory unidentified.
