Default Musical Composition defaults to Poetry

I've used this program for all my new PCs and NPCs for years and love it. But I just ran into a flaw I hadn't seen. (I checked for updates and I have the most current version).

By Basic p. 210, "Musical Composition IQ/Hard Defaults: Musical Instrument-2, or to Poetry-2 for song." But the program is defaulting Musical Composition, not just for song, to Poetry-2.

I made a test character with Poetry 24 and no musical abilities at all; GCA4 gave Musical Composition at 22. Pretty good for someone who doesn't sing, can't play an instrument, and has no Musical Ability.

EDIT: It would be nice if Musical Composition (Song) were included in the program, then that could default to Poetry-2.

Yeah, that's not quite right, is it. We should probably do something about that.

I'd appreciate it. For the use of myself and my group, I changed Musical Composition and added Musical Composition (Song) as described, but it would be cool if the program itself did that.

I also have Musical Composition (Song) defaulting to Musical Composition.
