Quirk is on a distinguished road
Momentum lets you use strength that would otherwise be lost on a light weapon. When using a 2 lb weapon with 2 strength, you are using your strength with maximum efficiency. If however you have 4 strength, your weapon will still only gain you 2 damage sides - unless you take Momentum, and then you will get to use all 4.

And yes, this build is a very common build.

Sil-Q isn't really an "advanced" Sil and you don't need to have beaten Sil to play it; I would particularly recommend it if you are trying to make a non-sword build work, because it is rebalanced toward giving all weapons a fairer shot at being good, or if you want to play a smith. I just don't have the hubris to claim my fork displaces all reason for playing the original.
