I think that Lunes originally had a madness attack because the moon is associated with madness in the real world. Just as darkness is associated with fear.
In game terms, RQ wanted to make some mechanism by which these elementals could effect the players.

However, now, we accept the madness attack and make justifications as to why this is the case. Certainly all of the lunar mysticism that has been "discovered" since Lunes were given stats in RQ gives a lot of justification for this power remaining in the Lune's description.

I'd like to see something about how Lunar elementals are different than Lunar daimones are different than Lunar spirits, as per the Elemental box text an Anaxial's Roster.
