BTW, when I said "this is broadcast, why quibble with 853 X 480p," I was 
referring to the transmission protocol.

You're not trying to tailor the stream to just one device. So, if you don't 
want to use up the bits needed for 1280 X 720p, you might as well go down to 
704 X 480i/p instead, be compatible with every ATSC device out there, and hope 
to save a meaningful amount of b/s in the process.
