Is a traditional BIR vindaloo really a madras with extra chilli powder added?  Does vinegar play any role?

I was hoping this video from Latif would shed some light, but he

There is definitely vinegar in the traditional Goan dish, but I do not believe that it plays any r

Some chicken 65 dishes use vinegar in the marinade others swap that for yoghurt, seems to me with Bir there are 247 ways of skinning a cat lol

No, much simpler these days though still using cider vinegar. I was going to write something longer but saw we'd already done the discussion in the recipe you linked.

Good tip on the Morrissons Volcanic vindaloo, I picked up a couple when I was visiting family, not bad for 2 quid....didn't taste anything like any other vindaloo I've eaten either. Still have the Phall to go.
