I do have to wonder if proper emulation of NAOMI is going to lead to the DC warez scene being able to hack up NAOMI games so that they'll play on a DC. Nothing fancy like porting of course, just the slash and burn stuff to get it to work-- quarter-sizing all of the textures, patching out whatever protection exists, remapping inputs, and so forth.
Of course, I'll bet Atomiswave has more to fear from that than NAOMI.
NAOMI 2 of course doesn't look too likely because of the T&L chip on top of everything else.
