Plywood delaminates first. The pockets that form entrap moisture, goes down hill from there.

60# sqft construction is 2x4 on 16 center with added wood for floor joists on a second floor. If your snow load is less you can use 2x3 (which is actually 1 1/2 x 2 1/2) on 24 centers with shear wall facing. Like I said earlier, 2x6 is mainly for wall thickness and added insulation. How you get there is your decision.
casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.
