I think you are missing the point. All the formats contain the same binary data. They just split it up or prefix a header differently. Tools have been around to convert between all of them for the last 12 years.

The issue today is all the ROM sites name everything SMC regardless of what is inside, and emulators don't care about the extension. Emulators don't need to know -- it's more an issue when Joe Blow downloads a ROM that is named SMC but is interleaved (sometimes unnecessarily) then comes bitching because his shiny new IPS patch doesn't work on it.
