I like the idea of including copy protection removal patches, so the original image can be left intact. Also, named cheat patches which can be presented in a nice selection menu.

Define "original image" though. There will be images which are flawed because of the dumping method and the copy protection will find out about that. There will be images that include the copy protection (like most DMK images). These are more 'original' then the former.

Of course, yeah, but at least the code hasn’t been altered.

Add “Wants to run in primary slot” to the list of flags too.

See all the games that need the /U option for the MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD.

Also would be very handy to have notes of known bugs/ issues if a disk has one and specify it if possible. Also note that sometimes there are multiple original versions which might slightly differ because the original company made a fix etc (for instance Microcabin is known for doing this).

Also license information would be really great to know the legality of distribution at a glance.
