Default Big Mek in mega armor: A question

Hello, today I mention another stupidly written part of the Ork Codex.

-If you notice the Warboss's options, he can replace his Slugga and Choppa with Mega Armor.
-But with the Big Mek, it only says replace the Slugga with Mega Armor.
-Does this mean that Mr. Big Mek would keep his Choppa even when Mega Armored?
-If this is yes, can he then further replace the Choppa with a Burna?

For some weird reason, I think this is intentional because the options format for the Boss and Mek are both written differently enough to count, and the Big Mek doesn't have the humorous "the Boss may not take both a Bike and Mega Armor, for he'd probably fall off a lot."

Yep I've heard this discussed a while ago on the main ork forum.
I don't know if its intentional or just a big spelling mistake, but otherwise you can have a power claw, burna and combi shoota/skorcha as the rules for how many weapons you have don't exist anymore, to keep your choppa would seem unfluffy but a big mek with an extra arm with a built in burna would be awesome

The idea I had in mind was a Big Mek who built a Mega Armor suit out of a Broadside Battlesuit, removed the railguns but put two shoulder-mounted Shootas in their place, and where the Plasma Guns were supposed to go he put a Burna, and a buzzsaw.

The Railguns would instead be carried around by Ork Lootas to represent Deffguns and the Deffkoptas I have in mind are looted Crisis Suits. :P

Stop and think about the new burna boy squads...how many meks can go in one.* From this you can clearly see that a Big Mek would be allowed to take burna. This was purposely done by GW.

in blood axes, they might have stolen a techmarine's servo-arm.
