I do agree it might be easier to comprehend, it's relatively consistent, and it's not hard to implement.
However, this will lose one function which is n00b friendly IMO: when the plugin is selected, and then you choose an ISO via the ISO selector, it automatically switches to internal ISO, with the newly selected ISO mounted. This will not be possible if one of them is always disabled, and it's an important function IMO.
Also a bit awkward usability with such function, is that if you want to choose another game with the "non current ISO reader", you first have to change to the ISO reader you need (plugin/internal), which creates a disk swap, and then you chose the actual disk you want, and it creates another disk swap. Somewhat ugly sequence..
Maybe we can do it one way only: the internal ISO submenu would always enabled (so whenever you select an ISO there, this is the ISO that gets mounted, regardless if you were using plugin or not), but the plugin submenu is only enabled if you specifically select Plugin.
This might also serve another purpose of promoting the internal ISO reader and directing the user to it, and discouraging using the plugin unless you really need it. After all, the internal ISO reader is quite robust, and can read most of the image formats you can throw at it (sans compressed images mostly).
What say you?
