So in a sense, soiling yourself isn't the problem--wearing pants is the problem. :)

As realistic as it would be, it would complete ruin so many games--most rely on a certain amount of dramatic tension, or at least romantic heroism.

So I like your idea of making it a character choice, but I would expect it to be a popular option. Wish fulfillment is too important a part of why people game.
Although, as a potential benefit, the PCs could just avoid wearing pants. :)
