Its probably one of those times where the gameplay guys are just ignoring the lore guys because if Darkspawn blood was THAT dangerous then people wouldn't be fighting them in melee, it would have to be ranged or at the very least at the end of a very long spear. And while that might make for a fine RTS style game, its gonna suck balls for a party based RPG. As a result, Darkspawn blood is only dangerous when plot calls for it.
Yeah, if pretty much everyone who get injured by a darkspawn became one or some kind of undead(I forget which), they wouldn't need the Broodmothers. They'd pretty much just make more darkspawn with even battle by default.

Honestly any game that decides to change gameplay up drastically at the very last minutes is making a mistake and should feel bad.

I'm looking at you MGS2 and the Solidus fight.
Technically the core gameplay doesnt change, the damage numbers just spike so high as to render that gameplay moot.
