Where you use superscripts to subdivide attribute scores, I use "limited 
attributes." These are part of my "negative cost" talents that I use for 
disadvantages rather than having disads boost attribute totals directly. (Take a disad 
like "hard of hearing" in my game, and instead of getting a higher attribute 
total you get more points to buy talents, spells, and languages.)

In particular, Limited St reduces your physical St for weapon use, unarmed 
damage, encumberance, etc. but still lets you use your full St score for 
fatigue, hit points, and those rolls vs St that are against the "toughness/high 
constitution" aspect of your St score rather than the "physical force" aspect. 

So if a player in my game wanted to play a "tough but physically weak" 
wizard, he could take (e.g.) St 15 and 6 points of Limited St. This would give him 
adjSt 9 for the purely physical uses of St, while leaving him with 15 fatigue 
points & hit points and St 15 to roll against for things that challenge the 
"consitiution" aspect of his St. It would also give him 6 more points to spend on 
spells & talents.
