Question regarding spells increasing characteristics

From the existing examples of MuCo spells, you probably wouldn't be able to give a blanket bonus in a characteristic.

What you might be able to do, however, is grant a bonus to a specific kind of tasks. For example, a spell named Strength of the Bull might give you a bonus to lift and carry heavy items (thus reducing encumbrance) much like Gift of the Bear's Fortitude provides a bonus to Soak.

Most characteristics are a composite of many traits. The unwritten (as far as I can tell) rule seems to be that MuCo can increase one of those traits at a time, not the whole characteristic.
