The way I see it is that when a mob dies, there is a player standing
there to get the stuff from the corpse, but when a player dies, his
corpse will lay there for a some time before he can manage to get back to
it. Unless, of course, he was in a group.

Yes, equal is good, but in this case being exactly the same is bad.
