  whiteshark: <DoubleCheck> At the end of your line (and 16.Nxe4) black is a pawn down. Same is true for <15.Nxf6+ Bxf6 16.Qc2>

and I don't see much compensation for it.

I havent got a super computer to analysis this for me, but i still think that with black attacking queenside with ...Qb6 and then maybe centering ...Rad8 ...Rfe8. White has his pieces on kingside and queenside i.e. not working in concert.

Although i do take your point that in endgame that extra centre pawn could be the vital difference.
