How about this then for a simple formula. 10x Str to encumber. That number x Str bonus (min 2)= Max lift.

I think this particular issue is important, especially because it is the only quantitative tie to ability scores.
I'd rather see the formula as Str x 5 for encumbered, and Str bonus x 2 (min 2).
That means encumbered characters all over the place, yes, but they should be. I can see a trained person moving pretty well with armor and gear, but the guy next to him in shorts and a t shirt is going to move better.
