To my mind, even CONTEMPLATING an interlaced future at this point is
insane. Granted, there's a hell of a lot of interlaced content still
being shot, and an enormous amount of archive - but if you wander down
Tottenham Court Road and look at all the new TV display technologies
that people seem to be happy with, NONE of them can display interlaced
pictures properly except good old fashioned CRTs. So the DVD forum want
to 'lock in' interlaced pictures for ever diminishing number of viewers
of CRT displays? And in HD too? It doesn't seem to make much sense NOW,
let alone at some future point in time when we're all watching TVs with
Plasma, LCD, CG Silicon or LEP displays.

I know what you mean - my girlfriend works in HR for the NHS, and
hearing her daily accounts of office life there are enough to sober me
up every time I'm feeling underappreciated
