That is absolutely correct. In fact the 3.0 behaviour was considered a bug and fixed in 3.1. Back in the day, pretty much the only PCMCIA cards you could buy were RAM, so nobody thought of I/O cards....

No, it's just that 600000-9FFFFF is reserved for PCMCIA RAM so if there is ram from another source present in that area, kickstart 3.1 will simply make the whole interface invisible to the system, so...

Actually the Kickstart will automatically disable the PCMCIA interface in case there is more than 4MB of ZII RAM present (which this is).

It depends on the brand. Some will work some won't. Check the wiki for the list of tested and working cards (v40 firmware). Sandisk ultra 8GB works, for example.

I actually have a 4MB kipper card without the IDE interface, one of the first ones he made I believe. Still, 16 bit ram is dog slow, makes the 68030 perform the same as 7 Mhz 68000. Not worth it IMHO.
