I've pondered and I figure I'll do Lifting and Striking ST separately, rather than a metatrait or any other kludge. I'll make a perk for them to use EE together for a coordinated action (such as throwing). It seems fair point-wise and power-wise. After all the character is paying full value for the ST just without HP, I'm going to add a power modifier, and it makes the EE effort cleaner.

As for how to note it here, I'm somewhat neutral. ST! seems clear (ST without HP) since ! been used to denote attributes minus secondary on the forums for years. Fixed ST would work, but it's described slightly differently in Supers even though it's just a Lifting + Striking ST metatrait.
GCS doesn't have the formula problem and for those of us on a Mac (or Linux) it is better then GCA (and better then trying to do it in excel). Also when Mac and Windows shift to ARM GCS (being in Java) will run natively, GCA will not and on ARM Macs GCS will still work when they drop the emulator (about three years)
