It sounds like it means the full -10%*Growth level, same with ST, but that doesn't make any sense.
If that were true, there would be points at which the price of Enhanced Move would net go down as you increased Growth level.
I'm not sure what you mean as limitations always decrease the cost of advantages, what doesn't make sense about it?

IMO yeah, not to mention any innate attack reflecting natural weapons (giant dragons breathing bigger fires than tiny dragons)

If only that template had Enhanced Move, my question would already have been answered.
Good find... I think for getting partial levels we might use "Costs Fatigue, Variable" (Power-Ups 8 pg 12) as an example of how ascending limitations begin low (initially -1 to hit for a 1d attack, or requires growing 1 size level to get 1 DR) but grow with a leveled advantage (-3 to hit for a 3d attack, or requiring growing 3 size levels to get 3 DR)

resembles "Declining Enhancements" (Power-Ups 4 pg 17)

If I recall right the cost works out something along the lines of half the value compared to the limitation applying fully at all levels instead of just the highest.
