The problem with making it a dodge bonus is that it runs into the same problem the old Defending had, as you can just stack Defending weapons with Armor Spikes, Shield Spikes, the Shield itself, the weapon, Braid Blades, etc into a stupid amount of AC. There's also the light nitpick that Dodge bonuses are never supposed to be granted by spells or magic items precisely because Dodge bonuses stack. While its nice and all to support TWFers, reopening that can of worms just leads to problems and exploits.
