We investigated that pretty thoroughly, for a couple of months after the sidechains paper came out. We ultimately decided not to go ahead with it, because sidechains aren't here yet! Bitcoin is currently incapable of accepting inbound transfers of value from a sidechain.
I definitely think of Bitcoin and Zcash as more cooperative than competitive. In the medium-to-distant future we might integrate with each other by techniques like sidechains or embedded-consensus. In the short-term Atomic Cross Chain Swaps are already possible, and that's the chain-linking technology that I'm most excited about because it is already here.

You were in the cypherpunks group, involved in digicash, mojo nation (we tallked then btw), then involved with other stuff.
Then the digital cash dream appeared in 2009. Why weren't you entranced and immediately sucked in?
Very few of the original cypherpunks seem to have entered the space and that surprises me.
