Thanks, that screed is interesting stuff, I wasn't familiar with it. The problem I see is the curing time. From what I read a 2" layer of screed would take close to two months before it was cured enough to lay tile.

An alternative seems to be buying a 'quick-cure' version, like Mapei Topcem Pronto, but then the cost of materials is much higher than concrete. So unless I'm missing something here, I'm not sure screed would work well for this project.
