By default, strength is meaningless too. If you don't use a melee weapon or a long or shortbow, it never comes up.
Except everyone uses those things. Ranged characters probably use bows.Gunslingers have to melee once in awhile. Even spellcasters occasionally need to make a melee touch attack.
Also carrying capacity.
Charisma does literally nothing for a barbarian who doesn't use Charisma skills (with no ranks, there isn't much of a practical difference between 0 and -1).
I mean, my Wizard might not make very many attacks of opportunity in his career, but hes's going to do it more often than the Fighter rolls Diplomacy.
