I would rather see everyone go straight to the new high def formats for audio as well.....
This is true (albeit I haven't seen anything on a 'new G98') and it's a curious move for one of the founding fathers of DVD-A that it is dropped from the latest units.

My concern is I don't really want to use >1 player if I ever moved to HD disc spinners

You bet. Once bitten twice shy for me and who's going to bet their house that either format will be still thriving in 5 years.....
