Default Characteristics of Zero?

In MgT, you can have physical characteristics or INT drop to zero due to combat damage, aging, and other effects.

But could you have EDU or SOC scores of zero? In T5, synthetics (think replicants) have these characteristics set at zero.

My opinion would be that "zero" is just what it implies (whether temporary effect, or permanent loss, as appropriate to situation):

STR=0 --> Total loss of musculature (or ability to use and apply it)
DEX=0 --> Total lack of motor-neuron or hand-eye coordination (cannot manipulate objects / complete loss of fine-control)
END=0 --> Total exhaustion / unconscious

INT=0 --> Mental Vegetable (or catatonic/comatose)
EDU=0 --> Complete memory loss
SOC=0 --> No recognized standing in society (e.g. a robot or other property or non-person)
