How is it nonsense? The present participle, "interlaced", is being misapplied by people who exhibit 
poor language usage and it's unfortunately caught on. ffmpeg is unintentionally helping to spread 
the misapplication.

This controversy and prejudice in favor of poor usage is why I recommend that "interlace" be retired 
in favor of "interleave".
