Not really related to paintball in terms of performance.

I'm just thinking that all that force on a localized weak spot will just spell "boom"

i would think a crack would provide enough direction to give you a pretty decent missile.

Also, as long as the cracks are just in the vanity coating on the outside, and not the actual resin/fiber wrap, I think it should still be fine.

Just as an FYI, when carbon bikes came into my shop with scratches, I usually used fingernail polish enamel to seal up the hole, to stop water penetration, and stave off any crack propagation. If you are REALLY concerned about the finish of your tank after you've dinged it, you can do like we did on 5-10k+ bikes, and use a bit of toothpaste and dental floss to polish it like new. The toothpaste has just enough grit to make a really fine polish.
