Maybe not as critical to do it in those cases, but I think useful. And in any case probably better to have a general rule than a special exception.

A centaur whose torso is built like that of a ST 10 human really ought to be (a) capable of wielding a sword much like an ST 10 human and (b) stronger than ST 10 for other purposes.

Besides, centaurs need the reach provided by two-handed weapons.
I don't understand this. I mean, everyone *likes* having more reach, but why do they deserve/need it more than anyone else?
