Gee, I dunno... Most of the time a character doesn't go for 20 years of their
life before they become an elf, a dwarf, or whatever... *shrugs* If 
people were striving a bit more towards realism, they are not going to have
the option to 'become a race' or 'switch races'... Choosing classes at a 
later date makes a little more sense, but choosing a race really doesn't...
