Bummer that these don't come without the nano anti crap like the recent Miami drop :/

Agreed, but you can remove it with some iso propyl alcohol. I just did so with my Tai-Hao bumblebee set and they look and feel much better now.

I know, already did that once. Will never spend money or time to do it again.

It is a real pain to remove the coating properly from the keycaps, without damaging anything around it. Seriously, Tai-Hao should stop with the coating. They make great products, but the coating is ruining it. The coating is just plain annoying/sticky/gross, etc. Instead of resisting dust/grime/bacteria, it attracts them.
EDIT: Reposting a guide from Reddit for the people who are interested: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/3ik3jz/guide_how_to_remove_taihaos_nano_antibiosis.
But seriously, if you are planning on buying these and removing the coating; Reconsider. Might not be worth your time. Ton of other people here will agree with me. These might be worth it though, considering these are PBT, and not ABS.

I agree they should definitely stop using the coating to begin with, but I didn't find it difficult to remove the coating without damaging anything - just time consuming! I would much prefer to not have to deal with it, though, and it's certainly a reason not to grab this specific set.

You should check out the gallery posted in the reddit thread I linked to in my previous comment (http://imgur.com/a/FodAg).
I'm suprised to hear that you got the coating off without any difficulty though.
