results in a 'success' because high stats are always desirable (you
get a better modifier which translates into a higher chance of
succeeding at everything). That's a broad brush to paint success
with, but they're probably just being very restrictive now since
there haven't been many D20 compliant apps for them to see how this
works. I'm not aware of any other D20 compliant software apps...
hopefully they'll be willing to lessen this restriction in time. You
can roll your own stats (either use actual dice or use one of the
billions of die rollers on the net) until then, so it's a nuisance,
but a relatively minor one.
