If all metals are inherently magical (much like everything else seems to be in Glorantha) is smelting and smithing not an inherently magical process? If this is correct then is it reasonable to see "Enchant [metal]" and think "Smelt/Refine/whatver [metal]"? Are their smiths that -don't- have appropriate magic?

(Yes,they let the n00b on the "big list" :))
