Any reason why DDS-4 hasn't been included in this list?

Based on research earlier this year on lists including Retro-talk, I 
ordered a Sony SDT10000 {DDS-4) to replace an older DAT drive and the 
results have been most impressive. Fast, efficient, trouble free 
(thus far) and makes archiving much easier.

VXA and AIT-2 would have been strong contenders for me if backwards 
compatibility with older DAT media wasn't an issue.
