Reply to "Mortars as individual weapons?"

I am a fan from the perspective of having a lighter-weight, maneuverable HE projector in the platoon.  However, from a safety perspective, I doubt the Army would ever touch it.  What keeps joe from dropping a 'regular' 60mm round down it?  

Maybe they should field a 59mm round, with ammo that will work in extremis from the M224, but that will not accept our full-strength (lol) 60mm ammo.  Otherwise, I wonder if these go boom if you use the wrong ammo?  Not that any Soldier would EVER do that...
