you also stated it will be more flexible this may be true but your off about the rest...
i just went down and got IX out of my fabric bin i made a 8 layer pad 8inch wide by 36inch long and at that sizes it packs down the same size as a 1L Nalgene bottle .... and thats only a fraction of a size of the one he plans to make .... it's going to be a big bulky pad when it's done
the point is IX works best when you let "Air gaps" catch hot air in between layers....
so your saying a big bulky pad made out of IX is better then a UQ made out of 1/3 the IX and 1/3 the weight and packs down 1/3 the size ?
to me thats not brilliant it's a step back
I will also add ... thing of the cost as well
think 4 yards to make a UQ... about Dbl that to make a pad so he made a $50 pad that packs down no smaller then a $6 wallyworld pad and weights more
