Rightly or wrongly, I always inferred that the table was a short hand but the progression was continuous and therefore ST 63 would provide thr 7d, Sw 9d+1. I think (I could be wrong) it should be the base case and not a variant. Otherwise, I guess I could create a data file for it based on your example above.
I try to recreate what's actually RAW as best I can. If it doesn't say it, I try not to assume anything other than what's there.

2) Looking at your code above, it made realize I could create a variant to follow the KYOS damage table but I am wondering how to create a variant to change the Basic Lift progression.

Well, shucks, KYOS is 3/38? I don't have that issue, but I have helped tons of folks with KYOS over the years, and I kept thinking that nobody ever sent me a file back to include! But I was just poking around in my folders, and found *two* possibilities, one of which even references Pyramid 3/83.

They seem to have similar damage tables to start with, but the two files aren't the same over all. So I'm not sure that I can actually include either one with GCA until I have a better idea of which of them is correct, or which parts of each are needed to make a correct whole.

I'll paste them in following messages, for folks to peep.
