I love the APs and the modules Paizo publishes. I know, that a lot of buyers only get them for the pleasure of reading a great story.
But in the end, it's still an adventure-module (however big), and it's main use should be for the GM using it at the table.
Therefore, the information in it should be easily processible.
Actually, I don't like the idea, that my life as a GM is made harder, because there are people who rather use the product in an unintended way (meaning, they only like to read it), and being served first.
It's an adventure-module for a roleplaying game. The guys who should get the most out of it are the GMs, not the guys who buy it for the joy of reading. I am not even sure, if the joy of reading would be diminished by a new format...
The Dungeon-Delve format was one of the worst inventions in adventure-module presentation!
But it would be cool, if Paizo would at least consider a more user-friendly format, IF (a big IF) enough people would care about a new one.
Prepping APs is a pain in the XXX - every help would be welcome.
I am presently preparing Shattered Star part5. And there are a lot of rooms in there. Knowing them all is really tough. Having a fast way of knowing what's inside that room (especially, when the creature entry is on the next page), would be a TREMENDOUS help!
Having the opponent mentioned in the read-aloud text would be far easier for the DM, and adjusting the description of that encounter-area if the players get there a second time is also easier than the way that inforamtion is presented now (among others).
