It depends a little on the army. Stealing examples from That Other 
Company, Tyranids (with lots of various bio-weapons) or Eldar (with 
lasguns and shuriken catapults; both use the same power source, but the 
shuriken catapults need additional ammo) could have mixed squads without

excessive supply problems... and if you go to armies with all-energy 
weapons, you could have the same ammo for all weapons - including heavy 
support weapons - and mix them freely in a squad.

Of course, that's for BDS...
