As proposed, I'm not sure the rule would allow for this sort of deliberation
by the PC. Kinda like the old minimum weight rule -- disqualified, no ifs,
ands, or buts (common practice was to refer underweight cases to the PC, but
the rulebook didn't actually allow for that).
If what you describe is how we think it ought to work, then the proposal
will need to be modified to accommodate it.
