Hi Joerg,
 I think that it is very correct to have different transport limits.
 For example suppose to simulate a primary beam with an energy
 close or equal to the lower transport limit, and have inelastic
 interactions with the production of secondary particles of the same type.
 You can follow them only if the transport limit for the secondaries is
 lower then the limit for the primaries...

 hope it helps,
