I had not figured this out before. Your suggestion seems quite reasonable.

 In Book 4, stats are given for 'normal'
 humans.  The numbers listed for S, St, D & A for
 men and women are 'avarage' 2d10 rolls of 11+/- the mods for
 their race.  These are then given no multiplier other
 than 1 (as opposed to a minimum 1.5 for characters). 
 Now, I have no problem with the low multiplier...except that
 it doesn't work with the Constitution and still come up with
 a correct HPV if using (S+St+C)/4 (RU).  The reason why
 I say that is that for male humans, if the Constitution is
 only multiplied by '1', then the man would have a
 HPV=(14+11+11)/4=36/4=9.  Women would be
 Now, this makes normal humans pretty
 weak...but that's not all...
 Consider the EnL of both humans. 
 The book calls for EnL=35 for both men and women, but if the
 multipliers are all '1', then the male would have an EnL of
 only 22, and the woman only 25.
 So...in order to make the numbers make
 sense, I would propose that the multiplier for the
 Constitution of normal humans be changed to '2'.  What
 would this do?
 Male humans would have a HPV of 12
 instead of 10, and an EnL of 33.
 Female humans would have a HPV of 12,
 and an EnL of 37.
 This way it keeps the calcs the same,
 but doesn't make them much different than they are in Book
 My 2BB.
