I have actually implemented races in that fashion instead of assigning 
classes.  The classes would be a good idea, but races actually add a ton
more possibilities.. especially if used in conjunction with the mob 
classes.  Using both you could actually create mobs such as a.
a drow wizard or a draconian fighter.. each having the appropriate 
racial abilities and class abilities.  I think this adds to the "realism".
