I have used skills and powers extensively. I agree with you that
the point system is not unbalanced. I find however that subabilities are
not unbalanced. Several horror stories that I have heard regarding
subabilities involve things like muscle scores of 21. If you carefully read
the section on subabilities you realize that no subability can have a higher
value than the racial maximum for the original ability, which makes them
much more balanced.
