Full aim does give a nice bonus to OF, which directly increases your to-hit. DPS on bows is balanced assuming now bonuses.

If a generic sword hit does 10 damage and takes 5 seconds, and a bow shot load/aim/fire takes 10 seconds, we make sure it does 20 damage. Which is actually better than 200% damage because of the way armor works (harder hits penetrate better). Add in the full aim bonus and you have nothing to worry about.

Even better you can snap shot bows (something other weapons do not have).
