Exactly, though you could argue that weight does play a role; however,
it's relative to the strength of the individual (regardless of how well a
suit of armor fits, the weight on my arm is going to have some effect on
how quickly I can make that arm move, and the stronger I am the less I'm
going to notice the added pounds). Regardless, in relation to TFT,
weight is the simpliest correlation to a DX penalty.
And, yes, you read that in GURPS (and Man-to-Man).
