One possible concern with the "minimum stat by clvl" idea is that you can use stat-swap potions to drain a stat below your clvl minimum, and then when you gain a level that loss would itself be "lost", leaving you with a net gain.

Given that stat-swap potions are currently the only way to permanently drain stats (unless you count nexus, which is irrelevant for this discussion), and given that the stat-swap potions have themselves been a bit controversial, I wonder if perhaps they should be done away with altogether.

Alternately, we may simply not care about that particular abuse case. I'd feel better about that if stat-swap potions showed up at the same time as stat-gain potions.
