Nick pointed out on Oook that this needn't be limited to artifacts. It would also be a mechanism for allowing dragon breaths when wearing (for example) a dragon scale body armour and matching helm (see #1567).

Lots of other interesting ideas in http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=5035. One of the most straightforward is that any dragon scale item grants a modest breath weapon, which does more damage if (i) it's a more powerful item and (ii) there are other matching DS items worn. But any number of matching DS items would only grant one breath. So you can wear all white for one big cold breath, or five different colours for five weak breaths. As Derakon points out in the thread, it's unlikely to be a big driver of kit choice in any case.
