I am still not altogether happy that this is the full explanation. Is something else happening, like the spirit combat is actually taking place on the mundane plane? If not, it seems that the Spirit World has different rules to any of the other Hero Planes.

I have been re-reading "Describing Magic", P163, in particular the second paragraph.

Also Issaries has a "Recognise Magical Value" feat in his Merchant affinity, P57. Lankhor Mhy could reasonably have several additional appropriate feats as part of his Knowlege affinity, P59 But Makabaeus has "Symbolic Sight" as a mental skill, P81

Some confusion reigns, though I guess that this is more a Gloranthan issue than a rules issue.
