Getting attacked on a part of the body that isn't covered or protected is really just as ridiculous as taking damage in numerical values until reaching zero; when instead you would be wounded on the area you were attacked, progressively getting ineffective.
Paper armor loses it's advantage over steel plated armor when wet.
Besides, I think a shock wave from an engi's grenade, bomb, or mine would realistically leave every class vastly underpowered... that is if you have the time to pull the pin before an elementalist zaps you in your lightning rod armor... or a bullet to the head and an arrow to the knee.
