If those item-enchanting wizards are so rare, then your argument leads to the 
conclusion that they will ask for - and get - much more than $500 for the few 
Light items they produce. 

I can't use this line of argument for my own campaign since I've made wizards 
somewhat more common (1 per 100-200, rather than 1 per 300), *and* I've 
reduced the IQ requirement of Lesser Magic Item to IQ 15. But if I did use the 
"Light items are rare, because the wizards creating them are rare" then I'd have a 
hard time *not* justifying a big price boost, not just for Light items, but 
for all magic items.
