Ok, I see that speech actually allows you to increase vendor gold supply, which is interesting, but not by a huge amount. You would still have to spend a lot of time travelling to offload decent quality items. It's the travelling I object too. It's like a separate and irritating minigame.

As for the actual carting around of loot: they should have left feather in. As a mage it made sense (along with open lock). You weren't 'forced' to have a companion to lug around your crap. I see they also removed burden, which was a great offensive alteration spell. They definitely simplified magic - and not in a good way.
