If you don't want to discuss realism - don't use it in the header.
If you do - well, generally D&D made a number of horrible inaccuracies into a tradition. So they crawl into many of otherwise good games. It's probably possible to come up with numbers more historically accurately representing various armors included in the game. Probably. It would still require starting from the scratch. Without historical reference this would be just number crunching requiring good grasp of statistics. If you have such an education - you are welcome.
By the way, Sombre didn't include one more armor penalty, though maybe more usually seen with forged armors: reduction of APs. Still, common units have APs lowered according to their armor.

IIRC, the AP reduction is calculated from the Enc stat. I don't believe you can alter it by any other means.

This is quite true, as far as armor modding goes.

...which would certainly explain why Sombre didn't include it.
