Thanks! p149: automatic damage, breath weapon, charm, energy drain, fear, gaze attack, immunity to normal weapons, immunity to morale checks, invisibility, paralysis, petrification, poison, regeneration, spell-casting, splitting or summoning other creatures, swallowing whole, and spell-like or other abilities of similar potency.

comment In calculating Basic D&D monster experience, what's a special ability?
I had clearly blocked from my mind the fact that the table calls for the DM to provide a small per-HP XP count in addition to the per-HD one. Yow! Too much math! Still, the table and its explanation has been very useful, so thanks again.

Thanks, that's very useful, and yet another reason to reread the 1E DMG continually.

comment Are magic missiles (generically) affected by the wind?
I wanted to provide some refutations, as I was sure, remembering, that I'd find some examples. At best, though, I found DCs for listening at doors and felt pretty sheepish. So I think I'm just projecting from older editions. Thank you!

comment What rules discourage point blank missile use in Mazes & Minotaurs?
I am accepting this answer at least until somebody finds a killer missing passage from the RAW. :-) Specifically, I have ruled that using missile weapons in melee combat moves one's attacks to the melee phase and invites free attacks from flanking enemies.

@SevenSidedDie That was my memory, too, but when I went to check my 1E and Moldvay books, I couldn't find it. I'm not worried about those, and I believe it's there, but if you have the citation, I'd appreciate it.
