By now you have 3 different answers. :)
Just keep in mind P&P was made for flexible people.  As Richard 
always said if you don't something or a rule then delete or change 
it.  IF you think a -20 shouldbe used rather than -40 then use -20.
So good luck.  Use your own judgement.  Test your own math and ideas 
out in situations.  If you think  Elves get cheated then up their 
chance to deflect IC. Good luck.
