because in WinUAE there are many RTG Board from Picasso II to Piccasso IV and many others well known on Amiga Universe.
CyberVision64/Cybvervision64 3D are also well known, so it will be nice to have full supporto to Virge for some software/games.
WinUAE has emulate very well some particular hardware, supports unimplmented fpu instruction, soft fpu, so i think it's time to supports also RTG with 3D support to have complete hardware emulation.

You said right when you say that better play on PC for 3D Acceleration, but i would be nice play also on Amiga side right
for a complete retrogaming.
i can play at Wiepout 2097 with PC and instead i play on DOSBox with emulated 3dfx.

I don't know WinUAE source, i'm not a coder, but if you are alone to develop it, i understand that is a huge works to supports various hardware emulation.
i can help you only providing some source from other emulators
