I have seen the acid staining and polishing used in residential work, throughtout the main floor of a large bungalow built for a physically disabled individual and the workmanship and style of finishing were fantastic, and talk about durabil;ity. More homebuilders need to look at this option and get away from the cheap and disappointing "hardwoods" out there. I believe homeowners would jump at this type of flooring option.

This post may be too little too late however since the question was asked some time ago it confirms my opinion on polished concrete is correct. I believe the future of polished concrete to be strong. At least here in Western Canada interest and demand continues to grow.

A single reliable comparison standard for performance would be great. Figure out the performance characteristics (wear resistance, color retention, hardness, maintenance cycle, etc) and incorporate the levels of individual results to an overall performance level so that specifiers can call out for "Level 1 Durability" for a high-traffic commercial floor with vehicle traffic or "Level 3 Durability" for a budget residential finish.
