I think that 16bit access for Disk DMA and Audio is not drawback, as their amount of data per second is so small.

What really needs a lot of data are the planes and the Blitter.
With the FMODE update the planes get 4times the bandwidth - this is great!
The Blitter still is 16bit this is a bit of a sucker.
