I think a ROOM_PAIN would work better than defining a whole new sector.  With
ROOM_PAIN you can give pain in any kind of terrain.

I think we're getting pretty picky here... should there be NO_POISON, NO_STEAL,
NO_BACKSTAB, NO_FIREBALL (we wouldn't want fire giants taking fire damage),
etc, etc....???  I think all these flags are going overboard.... and if
we're going to go overboard, we might as well create a new field for every
single skill in the list... I can see some skills being MOB_ flags... but
I think we're going beyond that.
