I would agree that using E-VSB for video is a brutal trade.  But using 
E-VSB for backup audio would pull less than 150 kbps from the 19.3 Mbps 
(it could probably be made even less) and would allow marginal viewers 
to continue with programming they'd otherwise have to dump.

E-VSB is a really brutal trade of primary stream data rate, just to 
improve C/N threshold on a secondary stream.
