You will get no argument from me on that. Fully agree. What a standard ("AAL" or whatever) would need to include is the electronics inside. No, it wouldn't be a cheap AA anymore. Even the shape of the "rechargeable AAL" is not that important. It could be flat, square, whatever. The benefit would be universality and availability - one box of batteries for all devices. Is it ever going to happen? No idea, but it would have to be rechargeable. There is no way I want to deal with disposables.
