From my travels, I've noticed that PAL countries can see NTSC tapes/dvd/television easily out of the box on their TVs.
The reverse is not true.
I would go with 60i NTSC.
But what do I know?

Keep in mind... as a general rule of thumb, PAL to NTSC transfers usually look a little nicer than NTSC to PAL when they are done on consumer or pro-sumer level equipment.
