That seems totally reasonable to me.  If you really think that a none-imm
should be toting this around and using it to test, perhaps you could imp
an 'AVATAR' flag which will allow a PC to use the item, but they can gain
no exp/gold/etc while so flagged... I've got another, "better" description
of this idea that I can post if you've the time to work on a way to handle 
immortals with non-immortal characters (something which always bugged the 
heck out of me as the main Admin-Imp on Shine ;)
