The only problem I see is that it's inflexible.  The item can only be
entirely unusable by the elf or only usable by the elf.  You can, of
course, add other pairs of flags for other races--but now you're using
two instead of one.  I might suggest just adding an integer array that
defines if each race can use it or not (something like "int
bad_race[NUM_RACES];").  It would be fairly simple, actually.
