"not sure about the ramifications of the patent issues). The new CIECAM stuff is also interesting."
The diminishment of the value of L* by basiccolor might give you a clue about that.
Karl already summed it up:

Do you have anything to add to the patient issues OR the two technologies?
For others, just noted that this beta runs Native on an Intel (nice).
Did a profile using the OPTIX on a Powerbook with the beta and MonacoOPTIX (not the same target aim points but close as possible but using CIECAM on BasICColor). Two profiles produce pretty similar results when assigning both to a black to white gradient and switching the profiles (toggling back to Photoshop). The OPTIX profile is showing much better black calibration (I can actually see a difference between level zero and 2). With the BasICColor profile, zero and 5. But that profile is a bit smoother on the gradient. Again, green area in about 10-15% of dark tones as mentioned above.
It's still somewhat of an apples to oranges comparisons with slightly differing targets. OPTIX doesn't provide the option for Native gamma or of course the newer CIECAM stuff.
