Ugh. Not sure I like this idea.
I don't like my ability scores being chosen for me.
1. I don't always maximize a specific stat, I have run clerics that started with a 16 rather than 18 Wisdom.
2. I'm not always going pure Cleric.
3. There are a few Cleric Builds that don't really focus on Wisdom as the absolute highest stat (though this ties into number 2, as often this is leaving the class at some point.)
A +2 to Wisdom isn't going to max it out anyway, so you could still go lower Wisdom. Also if you start as a different class then you still might not max your Wisdom. I'm sure there's plenty of ability score customization from Ancestry, Background, Class and whatever freestyle bonuses you get at character creation.
