Of course it's welcome.  It helps to highlight the importance of this new
technique.  It's a very cool thing.  Kind of like Mode-X on the IBM VGA
cards.  Actually it brings to mind a question that you are probably in the
best position to find the answer to, which is:  Did the original Atari guys
know about this?  Maybe they did, but decided not to use it because it's not
universal or something like that.  I guess the universality of the trick
will come to light with experience.  Many people need to try the demos on
many TV's to see how it looks.
