I got my C128 this past Christmas which had the 8 Dec 1985 release (at least
thats the date returned with no date set), but the FORMAT that came with it
only has a menu for 128-double, 128-single, and 64-single formats.

I can comfirm that 128-single also zaps 'side-2' on a 1571. I tried to make
a 'flippy' for a friend with 128 stuff on one side and CP/M on the other.
I did the 128 side first, then went to CP/M and formatted what I thought
was the 'other side'.  Luckily, I then went back to 128 mode to print
the directory (which I had forgotten to do) and 128 DOS was somewhat
confused by the disk.  Anyway, sounds like Commodore is still 
distributing the '2 1/2 option' FORMAT.COM.  Maybe the version from
GENIE and/or COMPUSERVE is an 'enhanced' version.
