er...ahem, I recall that

Another good tactic is the one used in the enderman farm - use the pressure plates to detect mobs, but they trigger a piston to push the mob off to it's death so the drops are at the bottom.

Also a good tactic if you for go for levels is to use vines to slow the mobs fall (again ala enderman farm) means all mobs fall is arrested at an exact height before falling again - means you can tune the drop to allow for max damage but not actual death - means you can kill them and get the xp with a single punch.

if you do want them to drop to their deaths....then have the floor as pistons so you can retract a block and the drop increases to death!
