That's also good to know, although seeing that I am about as old as RQ2 (1980 right?) and I came in with Hero Wars I wasn't even remotely aware of this. :)
I think that making the Moon Rune a Condition Rune does indeed stress the difference as you note in your post. Perhaps the Moon is something you become rather than something that just is. I think this fits well into Lunar stories about the Moon's return too.
