And that's why I don't like the ability advancement concept. Any GM would go ahead and grant the score, which would make the other players cry foul when they got their ability advancement. If the GM didn't grant the score, that would be disheartening to the PC.
IMHO, there should be growth at every level, and a partial advancement doesn't cut it.
