Very true. However, the bit about wading through a lot of fights completely untouched means that "I heal and only heal!" casters aren't going to be in demand. In the proto-DF campaign I ran, the healers were an assassin, a barbarian, and a death priest who mostly killed things but who had sidelines in healing woo-woo.
