You can already increase the amount of chip RAM with WinUAE, and it does wonders for software that is chip RAM hungry such as paint programs and scanner software. (Yep, some of us DO still use the Amiga for scanning documents).
I haven't noticed it break compatibility with any software yet either which is a good thing.
I agree that getting rid of the chip/fast RAM divide altogether would be a good thing, but only if existing software ran fine with it.
