It's not perfect, but it will pass until some beter conversions are published.
Thats pretty much that I had in mind if no one else can suggest a better way. But for striking damage (with Mecha) I think I will use my own formula; Swing = (STxST)/100 and thrust about half of that. This way it would follow the same principle as the lifting strength (which seems more realistic to me...) and the values below 20 even gets pretty much the same as in 4e damage table.
