Maybe, maybe not, whatever plays well? *shrug*

I agree for the most part. But I would disagree with you stating that the ambiguity is due to being a new player. I've played Angband vanilla for decades now, I just never needed nor bothered to delve into the mechanics until now.

I suppose a good solution would make an option available for detailed status messages to be either on or off, as part of the game's settings? That way players could choose when and if they want such messages.

The PCCPFCPB-likes have melee retaliation auras which hit you when you melee them. You could expand that system out by giving a range & aura with range:0 being melee. Just a random idea.

I don't think this is a good idea, because you run across mushroom pits in the game. The last thing you need is a bunch of grey mushrooms confusing you just for being in their area of acknowledgment, on top of much more annoying magic mushrooms, and the like.
