+1

I actually think that if you asked those that server video, they are not
likely to want huge frame sizes.  There is little point sending video much
faster than it can be watched, as to do so means that you need lots of
buffering in the client and when they decide they've watched enough of the
very cute kittens and press stop, you've sent a lot of bytes that were not
consumed.

OK I know it is actually impossible to stop watching a cute kitten video,
but I'm sure there are use-cases to which my argument applies.

Video is a use-case where frame size probably needs to be optimised, but
not necessarily up.

cheers
