I see the ST cost being lower equalizes the separate to hit rolls for each fireball as well as the finite 1-1 damage.
A 3 ST fireball does 3-3 damage to the target and against anything with even 1 point of armor or greater will always be better than 3 x individual 1-1 damage hits. So making it the same (3ST cost) means you would always choose the "big" ball if available.
For multiple targets- It is limited to tight groups (all within 1 hex) and x3 chances to miss again doing only small bow damage.

Now the lightning version of the spell probably should cost the same for all your reasons listed, but still suffers from multi to hit rolls.
