Rather than a 1:1 ratio (in d20, for example, losing 1 point of Strength now for a point of Strength later), you could make it a 2:1, 3:1, or even 5:1 cost (depending upon the scale and the utility of the power being charged).

Interesting idea, and probably workable in game terms, however story wise a bit of a downer (yeah, I'm being picky, I know). Feruchemy was of Preservation, which meant decay would be contrary to that.

Allowmancy was of Preservation. Feruchemy was of Balance. (And for completeness sake, Hematalurgy was of Ruin.)

hmmm well just off the top of my head i would say that metallic purity could perhaps be a factor in the exchange ratio of storing an ability. We know that in allomancy the metal's purity--and ratio when mixed into an alloy--is important. Incorrect mixtures don't work right and can make the user sick when burning. It's not strictly said in the books but perhaps you could extrapolate from this that the purer / better mixed the metal is the better the exchange ratio. And perhaps this could be true for all metallic magics.

Although I tend to think that really all Feruchemy is a 1:1, and would prefer that it stays that way in the rules... in the interest of game balance something like that might be possible.
