Unfortunately, "real world videos" is a moving target. With the advent
of digital TV, you can be 'fully digital' from the production studio to
the end-user device, and the result is that a static image like a
credits list will be perfectly constant in the end device (say a PVR)
and that is going to play hell with MPEG CBR encodings... which are
mandated by DVD standards, no?
