This has been my position since they started making it obvious in the movies that he's wearing armor. As the suit is meant as a way to intimidate by making Batman seem something other than human, making it look like he's armored kind of defeats that. I still hark back the scene In Batman '89, where an unconscious Batman gets poked in the chest by a Joker thug, and the thug says something like "He's wearing some kinda body armor, he's human, after all".
