Since my TV has no problems with NTSC (except when using the antenna
input) I'd prefer PAL-60 of course. :-)

I don't think that's a good idea. Some TVs may still roll (maybe even
more, since they might be optimized for fixed frequencies of 50 and
60Hz) and the game speed is still not 100% ok.

But I am also no potential customer, so maybe you better ask them.
That's why I suggested AtariAge.

Have fun!
