This seems to me like a sharp enough set of rules that I would feel confident ruling any 'unspent' talent points left over after character creation are lost.
Which is a bad rule by itself, but get worse when you also eliminate the rules requiring characters to train/study in order to gain new talents or spells (see me other thread).

For example, back in the day it was not uncommon to have 1 or 2 IQ left over after initial character creation that the player was saving for a more 'expensive' talent to be earned after some adventuring... like Fencing. Now you are telling me that those points are lost? No thank you.
