+1 on a Native version
+1 on not having a dongle (the reason why I didn't buy Waves)
Perhaps the Native version could be sold on an as-converted basis? Once you converted plugin #1, sell it for $199, $299 or whatever. Once you converted plugin #2, sell that too for another $199, $299 or whatever. People don't have to wait for ages until the whole set is converted, and they can start using Eventide products at a lower initial cost too, instead of having to buy a giant bundle at a matching cost. A win-win marketing approach.
