0011918: Dwarves can't witness a death by drawbridge if it's retracting
It seems that when someone dies where a wall is formed, no one can see it happening, and won't get a thought for it. They will be able to engrave it all over the fort later, though.

This is probably the case for encasing in ice/obsidian obsidian as well, but I haven't tested that.
Put some dwarves in a room and have them see someone being crushed by a DESCENDING drawbridge. They'll see it, get a thought about witnessing death and everything.

Now do the same but with a RAISING drawbridge (crushing someone where it forms a wall). No one will be able to witness the event, despite a person being crushed right next to them.
