First off, Knuckles in Sonic 1 is not official at all, the game included in the DAT is merely a hack (see http://www.s2beta.com/forums/index.php? ... =13&t=5379)

Secondly, I have suspicions that the current way of having S&K Sonic 2 and S&K Sonic 3 are probably not the proper way to do things. Preservation-wise, having playable ROM images (in the current emulators) doesn't really mean anything (bad dumps of Super Mario Bros can be playable after all). IMO, properly doing things means dumping the lock-on chip (if even needed for preservation; perhaps it simply needs to be documented) in Sonic & Knuckles and leaving it at that; weather it'll be emulated any time soon shouldn't be of concern to this project.
