I feel like we're talking past each other.
I'm describing situations where *the spirit doesn't change*--and the compromise is kept--but, *as far as the character is concerned*, it's as if the spirit's score improved.
When a character goes from "Sword of Hellfire 18" to "Sword of Hellfire 2W", that doesn't (necessarily) mean the *sword* has changed--rather, the character is now able to make better use of the powers the sword always had.
Similarly, I'm describing/proposing situations where the spirit *remains exactly the same*, but more of the spirit's power is available to the character (because he understands it better, or because more worship releases more of the power the spirit already had). The spirit doesn't change, but as far as the *character* is concerned, it's as if the spirit's "sword combat 18" skill had increased to "sword combat 2W".
