Default GURPS Who's Who in 4e

I have been going through the two Who's Who books for 3e and was wondering just how much would these people change for 4e. Would high HT mean high FP in 4e rather then high HP?

The half points for skills would go away of course. Also would special traits rather then high DX or IQ explain some of them better?

Some would be very similar. Still, a pdf that converted all the figures in GURPS: Who's Who 1&2 into four Ed and added a dozen new figures would be delightful.

Where HT and ST aren't the same, you could just adjust FP to match ST and HP to match HT if you want to emulate their original assignments. Or average it out somewhere in between.

All the attribute scores changed between the third and the fourth edition. They narrowed around 10. In the third edition, for instance, realistic geniuses often had IQ 16 to 18. With the 4th one, such scores are rarer. 14 and a well chosen couple of Talents is enough for building someone like Einstein. Ditto for DX.
