I must say that this hits the main point of all this right on the head.  We
arn't talking about a 7.5' unpadded polearm that we feel might knock people
out, or break an arm.

Broken bones will heal, consiousness is regained.  While these things are
serious, they are not permanent damage.

Unfortuneatly, cybernetic technology has not advanced far enough to replace
an eye.  If you lose an eye, it doesn't grow back.  You are simply out an
eye (and out of 3D vision for that matter).  There is no going back.

Therefore I see a threat of permanent damage a VERY good reason to
temporarily restrict something's use.
