Not at all, that is the best method... provided your Keycode reader can
on-the-fly detect the Keycode dot position related to the image
frame line.
(e.g. a pos.3 dot jumping to pos.1 after a splice could generate a 
one frame error in edit lists if the KC reader is not designed 
to perform instant auto-rephasing).
