I think for most Ardour users the extra disk space used will have a 
trivial impact compared with the extra processing overhead to convert 
it to another format. Seriously, how much does a large hard disk cost 
these days? In a large multitrack session with a high plugin count, 
even a slight increase in CPU load can break things.

Given the invasive nature of the changes required to implement this,
wouldn't it be a lot more efficient just to write a new application
specifically for making DJ mixes? (I'd actually be a little surprised
if someone isn't already doing this).
