Initially I read this as the GM was being a donkey...

I don't see any problem with using a pack mule or a donkey. There are realistic problems that arise from them (terrain, taking them inside etc.) but there are also advantages (treasure holder!). There is a reason why donkeys were (and still are) used to carry stuff, don't worry about it too much, it's just part of the game. If the situation calls for the party to be unable to carry large amounts of equipment, put it in a location where it's inaccessible to the donkey or just kill it. As the GM you are GOD of the world, something as small as this doesn't need to be a huge issue.

True battlefield control is occupying the entire battlefield.

I read in one of the books from 3.5 (for the life of me I can't figure out which), that there is no real reason for the nobles to be in power. The average person can read, which means information will be passed in a way that means they can't keep their peasants under their thumb. Additionally, the spell casters are dealing with INCREADIBLY powerful magic that could potentially overthrow the masses ant any point. The only setting that has ever addressed the fact that spell casting characters should really be in control of everyone was Dragon Age, where they had to be beaten down at every turn so society wouldn't be overthrown at a moment's notice.

*curse an inquisitor to forget the tennents of his/her faith
*curse someone to say the worse insult they can think of when they meet an authority figure for the first time
*curse someone to lose a finger any time they put a ring on it*
*curse someone to have eyebrows that distractingly crawl all over their face
*curse a rogue (or any stealthy character)to always emit a shrill sound

For a great multiple curse use look up the short story "I have no mouth and must scream"

Admittedly the phrase "no more powerful than those described" is open to a LOT of interpretation
