I think there could be a slight misunderstanding. It does say "we finally get 1:1 game dumps again. Great news for the release groups." This does not necessarily mean 1:1 is "required" in order to run the games.
I read this as simply that it makes it easier to dump the games in general, especially for the scene releasers. Its very possible we can get the best of both worlds in regards to easier ripping of games (be it from your own purchased discs or "pirate" release groups) AND/OR ISOs with stripped data to make the file sizes a little smaller. We really dont know without proper clarification from either modrobert, or the xkey team themselves.
