Default CBM and Chemical rounds burst size

Morning again all,

I just updated the DS 2 possible errata topic to include the two types of burst size, ground and air, produced by the detonation of a HE round based on Book 1 Rule 24.

I'm debating on the whether to revise the possible errata entries for the CBM and Chemical rounds to reflect the HE round ground and air burst sizes.

1. CBM

The CBM round, at least with my limited knowledge, bomblets are delivered to the target area and dispersed to cover a wider area by detonating the round a certain height above the ground. The change would, I think anyway, be to alter a burst size to an air burst size.

Would a CBM round have a ground burst size?

I don't think so, but I'm to sure enough not to ask.

2. Chemical

Can a chemical round have both a ground and air burst initial cloud size?

In the suggested errata entry the initial cloud size is for a ground burst which means I don't have to make any changes.

If a chemical round also has an air burst then the burst size needs to be increased by using the multiplier of either 2, per Rule 21 A2 Air burst HE, or 4, per Rule 24 A4 CBM.

Which air burst size multiplier makes the most sense and has the least impact on the game?
