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).
