Well, you'd better convince Richard Bannister to add soft IPS support in the Mac version, or you can count me out as a customer for the new format (at least the zipfile aspect).

Nor should you. As I said, INES will never go away. You're just adding another alternative for people to use, or not use. What ticked people off at nesdev is the fact that the poster proclaimed the death of INES. That's flat out wrong. Besides, INES files can still benefit from the XML database approach, so it isn't like you gain nothing by sticking with INES.
