How about a consider command that displays something like this.

..The cannon-fodder mob seems more heavily armored than you.
..The cannon-fodder mob seems weaker than you.
..The cannon-fodder mob is much larger than you.
..The cannon-fodder mob seems to be carrying a much less powerful weapon
than you.
..The cannon-fodder mob seems much less intelligent than you.
..The cannon-fodder is in better shape than you are.

Comparisons based on stats. Doesn't give them much free information, yet
fulfills the definition of 'considering' a potential target.
