How do you figure? A +1 Couragous weapon would give +1 Str and Con and Will saves when raging.
It increases the score. It takes 2 points into an attribute to either increase or decrease the modifier it grants.
A Courageous Weapon with a less than +4 Enhancement Bonus only grants 1 point to the given attribute.
The Will Saves would increase, but the Strength/Constitution modifiers would be unchanged unless the amount needed to increase the modifier is 1 attribute point.
Only if you can guarantee that you are going to get that property soon and will be able to keep that weapon relevant over time, which I have never seen happen in practice.
