I think it's time. The prevalence of barbed kits has made leather the default armor for everyone, and even the metal armor crafted with runic hammers is always samurai plate for the mage armor property. All forms of armor except leather and samurai plate have essentially ceased to exist save as novelties at anything beyond newb level. It's time to have the mage armor property cease appearing on items, and just make all armor medable by default. I do not have any characters with meditation, I just would like to be able to find nice studded leather or ringmail available from time to time.
