CS-2009 IEQc4.1: Low-Emitting Materials—Adhesives and Sealants

I am assuming that the VOC limit for these sealants is "Other" 420 g/l. Can anyone confirm?

For duct sealant, there was a CIR ruling on 6/26/09 that states duct sealant would fall under "other". However, CIRs from previous versions of the rating system are not necessarily applicable to 2009 but in this case it seems to make sense that the ruling would still apply. For fire stop, I have mostly submitted it under architectural.
Has anyone had luck with submitting fire stop as "other"?

Is there a shortcut to the VOC budget method if you have just one product that is used minimally on a project?
Do products applied to the weather barrier need to comply with VOC thresholds?
How do I determine what application my product falls under?
How is VOC % less water determined for aerosol adhesives?
Do grout and caulking need to be included, and if so, what is the application category?
Our project didn't use some common adhesive types, and our LEED reviewer asked about this. Are we supposed to justify not using certain adhesives in our documentation?
