Could not agree more with your whole post, but this bit in particular.
Was talking with a friend today who posited that perhaps they found a forgotten master roll in deep salt-mine storage, thus the immediate release. Makes sense. Granted a b&w emulsion is simpler to produce, but given the difficulties resurrecting Ektachrome I donít picture them just whipping up a batch of this stuff, which has such a small potential market.
