Each character's "rare" Item of Extra-Specialness is remarkably rare, especially the Druid and Assassin ones. Every time a character in your one-class party finds an Item of Extra-Specialness other than his own, you're bound to notice, get frustrated, and remember the event. This is part of what causes selective memory. I haven't worked out the numbers, but it's probably not that improbable to find many of the less rare Item of Extra-Specialness without finding the rarer one at all.

Also, the usefulness of having more than three Assassins in a party is somewhat questionable. The back three can't do very much unless they have spellcasting abilities, and even then they'd be more useful if they could wear magic-enhancing Items of Specialness.

I guess a sufficiently experienced Assassin could take out an enemy with a single spitball, but for me that's no good reason to split experience six ways instead of three.
