Possibly stupid question here... what about a hardware-based front-end solution like a Terranex or some other similar hardware-based, "brute-force" converter? Seems to me, you love everything else about the NLEs but their ingest/conform, and if one of these bad boys can just crunch anything that you feed it, wouldn't that solve one of the big problems of too many formats coming in?

Maybe, but not something I'm going to test right now. But the basic point of the matter is, if you're going to make the front end of your workflow more flexible, then you need to do the same for the back-end. That's what I'm hoping to work with Avid on moving forward.

By the same token, we really want Adobe to be able to conform a timeline at the end of the process instead of just making a flattened QT file.

Thanks for your positive comments!
