I do not know how in other countries, but here in Norway they are quite 
available. I bought myself SONY DVP-NS 300 player, which was "officially" 
region 2 player, but it took only few seconds for the seller to make it 
regionfree with some special remote control. Thus there is something going 
on which might be called "double moral" --- official data differ from real 
data and everybody seems to know that.
         As far I have been able to see all kind of coded DVD-s without any 
problems (included NTSC format). The only possible problem is that not all 
TV sets do show NTSC format properly. However,  most new ones do (both PAL 
and NTSC color system).
         As regards the fear for REA technology, I guess it is not going to 
affect very much un-commercial films. And when all is said and done, the 
technical world is changing fast anyway, and one cannot hope to keep the 
same players for ever...
