I agree and I really like this feature. I generally go dex heavy which means agile monks with no real damage. But it also means giving up a feat so that there is a chance of hitting. This class ability solves both problems.

My original point is that adding wisdom to damage emulates a feat that most melee types won't have access to (weapon specialization). Though I think whether it should be allowed or not is best left to the individual DMs.
