and you will have problems to loop mount the disk images on the host.

That's not true - the [PARTITION] was introduced to actually SIMPLIFY
the loop mount!

Just a comment about the loop mount:

I've introduced in linux 2.6.26 a patch allowing to manage partitions
with loop:
you must load loop modules with a new parameter giving the maximum
number of partitions per loop:

# rmmod loop
# modprobe loop max_part=63

and then you can:

# losetup -f my_disk.img
# mount /dev/loop0p1 /mnt

Sounds cool but please tell me - does the loop recognize the special
Atari PTBL formats (AHDI and ICD)?

If your kernel is able to manage it on a real device it can also with loop.
