Don't worry Tir, I'm not about to run roughshod through the data ;-)
Seriously though, I realize that the last two bits we've been talking about
have much deeper implications than the NaturalEnhancement setup does. I
would not commit such a change without testing, discussion and consensus.
But the issues here are related so I'm following this through to see what
conclusions can be drawn.

Thought about that, discovered a couple of other problems as well. Just
consider this me thinking out load and not part of the Amulet of Natural

Definitely NaturalArmorEnhancement :-)

I'll keep that in mind as I dig into this, maybe I'll hit upon that solution
