There is already FDI format that should support "everything". (not sure if it is good enough for this solution but afaik it can store flux changes)

Also WinUAE has full FDI support which means image testing can be done without writing complex conversion routines etc..

EDIT: added url (FDISPEC.TXT inside, "pulses-index streams track")
