no multigaming would be ideal

There's some truth to this, though I hadn't thought about that aspect of it. A variation of it is that though it might to rise to the level of "distrust" (at least no more than is inherent to werewolf, your opinions don't carry particular (one might argue undue) weight when you're on a gimmick.
I know that when I play as a gimmick it doesn't matter a lot early in the game because my style doesn't rely heavily on convincing people I know what I'm talking about early on; none of my gimmicks have gotten deep (at least not that I recall), so I don't know whether there would be a different effect if that were to happen. I don't know that this counterbalances the advantage I could have if I were hiding some aspect of my true meta, though. Maybe for some players it would actually be more a disadvantage than the corresponding advantage; in fact, I'm pretty sure it would.
