This seems a natural trait for the Barbarian, but it's a bit surprising that the Monk possesses it as well. Nothing in that class' design or presentation thus far has hinted at his competency with or preference for a sword. Also note how much lower level the Monk's requirement for this trait is; perhaps it's meant as an early-mid game option, enabling the Monk to go sword/shield for a time, before moving to his ideal two-handed staff or dual wielding fists in the late game, once he's strong enough to do without a shield.
