Was there a comment inbetween that made you say this?

But with IWADINFO, things are easier to get standalone releases for, indeed.

Back in the day, IWADINFO wasn't as robust as it is now, which was why games had to be added to the internal IWAD list. IMO, in hindsight, it probably wasn't the smartest thing to add anything other than the officially-sold games into the internal IWAD list...

IIRC Graf also said something about not wanting to expand the internal IWAD list anymore but I can't find the post.

The last additions to that list were even done against my wishes, namely "Rise Of The Wool Ball" - this one was added right before IWADINFO was made a feature - and I could have done without Delaweare as well. There are two I'd immediately remove if they came with an internal IWADINFO.

Action Doom is semi-supported but I deliberately chose not to do a localization for it and not have its graphics expanded because it's far too complex for that.

Would it be feasible to break those off to an external support loader of some kind and remove their entries from the official distribution?

I'm in favor of cleaning up the unwanted games from the main distribution. Looking at my INI, there's a ton of sections created for IWADs I don't even have on my computer.
