I think many features that Super-AGA provides were on to "todo" list by the Amiga developers.
- they wanted a Chunky modes.

Absolutely agreed. I still wonder if it would have been possible "back then" or if only more recent advances made it possible (this is not about your company, I am wondering "how big did Commodore fail in the end" ;-) ).
I have great respect for both the Motorola and Amiga engineers.
They needed to get everything right and fully working.
I today have the luxury that I can make some new logic - then test the logic, use in real live, and if I see something to improve then I can change the design, and update it.
This is much easier then only having one shot which need to be perfect.
