Just my curiosity, but isn't it easier while developing video codecs
to work with floats, and then convert to fixed point arithmetic? It
can be hard while designing algorithms from the start to agonize over
fixed point at the very beginning, echoing your remark about
placeholders.

That pow may be translatable to sqrt, code above suggest half
integers, though I have not studied this. In any case, a comment with
a TODO/FIXME maybe useful for reference.
