Google "FLAC vs WAV" and you'll find out that there is no audible difference between these two.
Only the FLAC filesize is quite bigger than WAV, so obviously i would not agree with this feature request.

Although Propellerhead can add it as addition to WAV, but then i would rather see MP3 import+export coming to Reason.

That's wrong! FLAC is a free compressed lossless (=bit identical to the original .wav) audio codec which saves about 30-50% of file size.

So adding FLAC import and export to reason would be very nice so we could convert our sample libraries to FLAC and save some (ssd) disk space.

Read this http://thewelltemperedcomputer.com/KB/WAV-FLAC.htm and see the sources on the bottom of the page.

No offense, something, but you should really read and try to understand the page you link to as it states:
1. "All these testing invariably yield the same result; WAV and FLAC are bit identical."
2. FLAC filesize < WAV filesize

Alright i must have misread it but FLAC requires more CPU resources though, which is definitely not what Propellerhead want if you know that the audio quality is the same.
