Am I missing something
or does Barcan (the only person that can use a staff as an implement) not have any poison attack powers to take advantage of the property?  

I know the +2 to attack and damage rolls and the 2d8 extra damage on crit trump all the inherent bonuses but wouldn't other staves such as the staff of tongues be more useful?
I'm second from the left in the picture.

D&D Home Page - What Class Are You? - Build A Character - D&D Compendium

it's a recurring theme (meme?)!
I think some of the comments by Encounters authors suggests the items are done later in the editing process and thus don't always fit the author's vision or the pregens (which seem to be done at yet another step in the process).

The author's response seems to have always been that we should substitute something useful or change the item (change it from poison to fire or something similar).
