It's nice to know what life expectancy in the middle ages was like, but we shouldn't take too much from it.

I fully agree - gameplay should come first. If reasonable ageing clashes with design decisions, however, then the ageing can be tweaked. The 84 days/year rate is not set in stone, and if mortality is ever implented, I'd rather see it changed so that whatever timer has been deemed appropriate for game-play reasons creates reasonable ages than seeing character die of old age at 32 years old (or 130 for that matter).
After all it's a roleplaying game.
