Talking to Rob the other day, and Rob you can correct me or expand on this, of course, he said that as GM he doesn't want to make those kinds of calls. It's uncomfy and he wants commoditization instead, so he isn't the one judging others' contributions. He said that "...eh, that just doesn't seem worth +1 to me" is a difficult thing to do.
This same thing strongly contributes to some failed In a Wicked Age play. That game requires the GM to say "hey hold on, back up, no, your character hasn't done that yet. Keep talking, convince me." Not every GM will.
