I suppose you could argue that the +2 magical defensive
enhancement protects against ALL attacks which can 
cause its wearer physical damage, regardless of whether
that damage is real or imagined.  Otherwise, doesn't 
this have a danger of descending into a kind of circular

I mean, what would happen if you used an illusion of a 
+3 sword to attack your opponent?

It might be, I seem to recall something like that being
said in AW as well.  I dont want to cause a big ruckus
