Why on earth would you nerf that?
I second this notion! That ability makes it possible to build a Monk who can keep up with a str based melee using a two handed weapon (You know, for that 1+1/2 times str. Or x2 str with exotic weapons and one level of exotic weapons master.) Why would you not want to let your "punchy/trippy/grapply/bulls-rushy or your twfey monk NOT be able to make a respectable showing by comparison?
