True.  My point was that the material in EAWF is probably incorrect
according to TSR, and that clerics do _not_ access the ethereal plane for
transformation.  This is because the clerics, due to the grey and the
black, would have trouble reaching the ethereal plane.  Now, TSR has made
some weird Dark Sun rulings, and they might decide that the ethereal
plane _is_ accessed, although that wouldn't make sense, given what TSR
has written since EAWF.

So, it is up to individual DMs.  If you follow EAWF, I think you are
right. If you hold to the concept of the grey and black, I think it is
much more believable to have the clerics not need a connection to the
ethereal plane, but perhaps to some other force/plane/something???....
