[Bill Davis]"Seems to me that would require a virtualization of the Entire FCP Legacy code inside such a translator wouldn't it?"

No. Most translate software simply needs to map the information in one format to another format. I have AAT software that can translate a lot of audio transfer protocols like AES31, AAF, OMF and custom project formats like ProTools, Reaper, Sadie etc etc. So I can map a Sadie project to an OMF or AAF optimised for Fairlight. AAT is a small down loadable software package and the entire source code of each proprietary system is not needed. Just the ability to understand the project file's structure and how to map that to a different project file structure like xml. It has nothing to do with sub licensing IP . Think of it more like a database format conversion.

Moving on is not an option for many so this tool may be viable.
