In fact, nearly half of the word forms in the entire corpus appear only once.

This is not the right interpretation. It is true to say that the word is not 
ttested frequently in BM and CW, but this does not imply that the authors were 
imiting their use of this word because of the kind of aesthetic which you (or 
thers) may wish to apply in the Revived language. You can't infer a distaste 
or the word merely because it occurs only once. There are hundreds of words in 
M and CW which occur only once.
