One quick note about this, is that removing that hard limit isn't so
simple as "just" removing it. There is an issue that a notable number of
areas in the code do assume a max of 30 or give unreasonable bonuses if
stats are over 30. I would agree the stat cap of 30 should be removed,
but just noting, it would also require reworking most of the formulas
that give bonuses based on stats.
