If you don't like them ML i will take them ... for free .
Its good we are getting a new low profile switch, its silly that they don't make them work with ML caps tho.

Having built a custom keyboard with ML switches, I'm familiar with their shortcomings yet still enjoy their short throw and less bulky size and still think it was a good choice for my Alumaplop for those reasons and I've been using it exclusively for the last year.
It will be interesting to get a report after the Kailh switches are tested in a keyboard. I remember thinking that the ML's were better than they really were when I just pressed them between my thumb and finger. Let's hope for the best. I think there could be a big market for a smooth operating, low profile switch with a short throw.

The switch has indeed a ridge and they are "mountable" on a 1.3mm plate. I say it between "" because you'd need very specifically crafted keycaps that Kailh have not done yet.
Anyway it's not the ridge that prevents standard cherry ML to function. Cherry ML keycaps hit on the clear housing before hitting the ridge. I haven't measured them but I'm pretty sure the stem position on kailh and cherry is different (it's more centered on kailh).
