I was thinking exactly the same things:
1) this needs to not be a straight line,
2) the most obvious way is to make the finesse and prowess not always sum to 100,
3) the better way is to increase the damage for the balanced weapons.

PS Scatha is being very generous to me with the use of 'we'. Actually he worked this out and I actually took a little bit of convincing. It is definitely the right approach though.
