Christopher,

First of all, the term is ACMADE, as far as I know. It is an American
standard.

Second, every feature film editing room in the world today uses ACMADE code,
regardless of what other medium they edit with, ie Avid/Lightworks.

If they have workprint and mag, they've got ACMADE. It is by no means
outdated!
I believe closer attention needs to be given to the way Hollywood features
work by labs in New York.
Consistently, the Hollywood editors complain that NY labs have no idea what
their needs are.
Your statement that this (ACMADE) mode is outdated only supports their
contentions.
