ALL your points are valid :-) except one... out west the number of fields allowing out-number the number of fields that don't. Almost (like 90 %) all major scenarios fields and magfed games allow FS rounds. Its new tech, coming your way !!!
I realize MCB discussions are mostly speedball players and many dabble in other games like scenario. However soon FS rounds will be everywhere with few fields denying there usage. I see this out west (USA) already.

So your information is accurate.
HOWEVER paintball players use as a whole standard paintballs.
Most cannot afford to shoot them as a regular item along with the fact most fields and events DO NOT allow them (for insurance reasons primarily as well as other reasons).
So there is no misconceptions.
