I'd go the other way.  24 bit is much better quality (the hardware I'm
working with now supports 16 bit, but we don't use it at all - 24 bit for
anything we compute, and 8 or 4 bit paletted for anything pre-generated
that will fit without looking bad).  16 bit looks *awful*.  OK, it's damn
good compared with a standard C64, but on an absolute scale it's bad.

Also, extra features are extra development time, and extra bugs.  Keep the
first one simple, and add the goodies later.
