It gives everyone Luck automatically, for instance, as part of the general goal of being good for Action-style games. In a less-genre-oriented setting, you could drop that, cut another 10 points from other required traits, and then allow characters to choose 3 specialization packages, instead of two.
I agree. This works very well. You might also compare to a less Action-specific version that Kromm posted here:
