So, why not have racially-specific equipment? As it is, it doesn't make a ton of sense that an avariel and an ogre can wear the same stuff. I'm not talking about a radical overhaul of all equipment (god, I know some of the present overhauling is time consuming). And I have no idea how hard such a thing would be to code, but, I do think it would remind players, quite forcibly, of their characters' races.
One place to go would be, with the new overhaul, make it so that small characters cannot use two-handed (2H) weapons at all.
Of course, perhaps there are rings of great potency which only fit the hands of avariels, elves and dwarves (I think these are the coded small races?).
Kine, of course, get fucked in this as in all things, for consistency's sake. (No, if someone can think of a way to give kine some love, I really do think that'd be super... I just, I think, make the same failures of imagination that have plagued people considering kine since the beginning of DR--as well as a lot of roleplaying games, D&D for instance).
