And, yes, the threat generation would have been pretty painfully bad: Strength was pretty much absolutely minimized.
Interesting sidebar: not only does minimizing strength nerf threat, it also weakens Blade/Sonic Barrier by a significant amount. It never occurred to me before that the unlettered mods provide even higher survivability than just the secondary stats would suggest due to the higher allocation of primary stat. Not sure how much more off the top of my head, but certainly a fair bit.

Of course, the question is academic, since the unlettered mods are already vastly superior to the lettered variants for Guardians/Juggernauts and Vanguards/Powertechs alike, but it seemed interesting.
