I would think we should do both in parallel: yes this sort of thing will have an impact on the results of those experiments, but this should be mitigated by fine-tuning the code used in the experiment.
On the other side, having some early results from the experiments may help us having a better view of what is the tradeoff we have to make.

And then we're back to my underlying question:

Isn't that the sort of thing we should settle before people spend a lot of
time on simulating compression and encoding schemes, as this will clearly
have significant impact on the results of those experiments ?

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
