Having the extra space would make it more like I consider using some items I don't consider "stock". So I think having a wider variety of items to choose from would be great all in all, as long as you can still only pick one from your Locker.
This. Limited locker space and expensive preparations means less incentive to try out new things. Purists are one thing, but part of the beauty of the whole preparation thing is that you can try to find out interesting combination and combos, or simply try out silly things. With preparations being costly and locker space limited, the player stands to lose with unoptimal runs, circumventing the variety of approaches.
Say I want to try a Dwarf Bloodmage + Draco's Heart + MANA to HP preparation run. I'm not willing to first scum for a Draco's Heart subdungeon, then replace one valuable locker space with it, then spent gold on preparations to see if it's a viable approach, then come back and scum for the original locker item because it's not really that powerful. Then I ditched the Draco's heart even though its only use is as a locker item.
You can only carry one locker item anyway. Limiting the locker space is the worst thing you can do with it.
