Ok ... I think we are approaching the same idea from different
directions.  The only thing I don't like about the adjIQ idea
is that the initial level of knowledge points is limited, but
maybe thats a good thing, I dunno.

To ramble further, I believe that increasing your initial stats
should be very difficult.  Certain talents should give you a
benefit as result of side effects: Acrobatics may give you a 
+1DX, Unarmed Combat I a +1ST etc. due to the type of training
that is involved. 

The benefits to intelligence from studying 'intellectual'
subjects are harder to quantify though.  Does studying to be a
Mathematician or a Physicker make it easier to pick up Alchemy
or something?  My gut feel is no.
