The problem is that the rules do have a fixed scale for stats which is based on the best ability of heros being xW3 and superheros being xW4. There is however little guidance on character advancement to maintain characters within that scale. At present it requires considerable experience to have any idea what level PCs will reach from a particular policy of giving hero points.
Even if a group decides they want to work with a different system then the narrator needs to know the base so they can scale NPCs accordingly. This is game system mechanics which need to be consistant within published works. What different people do with the rules is up to them.
