Thanks.  I guess my other perhaps now-irrelevant question would be: "If one 
such encoder exists today can it emit 853 x 480p60?".  If not, and if Table 3 
and cable/sat preclude this as an emission format, then maybe this thread 
becomes moot except for IP delivered apps.

At the time (3 years ago) there was not.  Today? Don't know.
