Default Reasonable ST Limits for SM -1 and -2 Characters

According to the build table on B18, the suggested average ST for a human(oid) character with SM-1 (4' tall) is 6.

For SM 0 humans, attributes in the range from 8 to 12 are considered the average band, 5 to 15 are exceptional but humanly possible.

Applying these +/- 50 % variations to a base ST 6, this would make 3 to 9 ST a reasonable limit for small characters.

While the Basic Set advises the GM to let players select their ST, height and weight freely, what ST ranges would you consider realistic for SM -1 and -2 characters? If you were to build racial templates, what ST baseline would you set?
