That's absolutely right, but it's not the problem.  The issue is that stuff
you time as 601 could get upconverted by a cheap box without a color
and played back as if it were 709, and vice versa.  Does anyone think that
looks so very much better than 601 that it's worth keeping track of two
standards?  We've had drop and non-drop, dolby and non-dolby, and now we'll
601 and 709 stickers....  Is it worth it?

If you want, I can show you simulations of the possible mistakes as .BMP
