And there be people on Windows NLEs who will curse using H.264 GOP. There's a world of editors out there that have nothing to do with Macs or Final Cut Pro. They may be able to play the file in Quicktime but their NLEs may not and they may not be happy dumping a transcode job on them. The transcode itself can be a quality hit.

Imagine going from XDCAM GOP to H.264 GOP to transcode to whatever . . . and you're doing broadcast work and need to use the source for compositing for another round of damage.
