Just in case someone is interested, there is a guy who machined a set of eggbeaters to be compatible with the MKS quick release mechanism.

I wonder whether there are or might be any quick-release or folding
pedals that work with Shimano SPD cleats.
Removing and replacing pedals is a pain, and now I have damaged the
threads on a crank on my NWT so it's time to think about finding a
better system. It seems to me that my NWT might just fit into the
Travelcase with QR pedals, especially if I avoid the newer-type
bowlegged cranks (designed to clear MTB chainstays and the wide front
derailleurs needed for wide-step triple cranksets). The clearance is
completely unnecessary on a BF with DualDrive. I have several pairs
of older, straight cranks that place the pedals quite a bit closer to
the centerline of the bicycle. They offer better cornering clearance
when riding, too.
