I agree with maximizing the "sea of pth". My intent is to fit the buffer chips in place of the existing S-100 Terminations, with the top row of the chips aligning with the bottom row of the current Sea. The worse case, may be to loose just one bottom row.
Ahh, I like your idea of recovering the regulator space. What I will try doing is add more holes there and run traces around the outter edge.
The 5V regulator is a must keep, obviously.
Let me see what I can conjur up...

Subject: Re: [N8VEM-S100:2448] Re: Board Run: Unbuffered Prototyping
Although those all sound like interesting enhancements, the result is a bit different than an "unbuffered" prototyping board. I'm really interested in retaining the maximum amount of uncommitted sea-of-PTH and minimum commitment to additional circuitry. Ideally that would include reducing the current commitment to three voltage regulators. Perhaps one or more could be jettisoned?It's, of course, your design. So I'm "holding tight" until seeing how much real estate gets chewed up by your additions/modifications :->.
