While I'll be among the first to endorse the installation of a curbless shower, Steve, there are some "gotcha's". Among the largest is if a frameless door will be needed and/or wanted.

If the shower foot print is such that a frameless door is required to contain the splashing water then that door will almost certainly require a sweep and, to be effective, that sweep will need to be within about 1/16th of the floor. Trouble with that is it leaves no room for a bath mat outside the shower because the door must swing outwards. A sliding door might solve that problem but only if the shower foot print can accommodate one.
