400dpi / 24bit colour should be nice. Even so, there are still plenty of
small details which are disproportionately interesting, where 1200dpi scans
might reveal the subtlest of details - what the various non-Voynichese
marginalia really say, for example.
I think UV light is out, and any special requests ditto - they have to
think of conservation. They also pointed out that not all pages may get
scanned - if the conservator decides any are too fragile they will have to
wait for full conservation (but this is not scheduled).
AIUI, some of the fold-out pages - in particular the nine rosette 'map'
page - have become very fragile over time, and so (I would guess) may be
unlikely to be part of this current scanning process. :-(
