[Mike Most] "It's the standard way of doing things for the reasons you mention and others. In theatrical features, there are changes going on right up until release time. There are also multiple versions, some of which have different material. The DCP operates with the concept of a composition play list, which specifies which frames to play from which files in which order. This allows for packages to be created that have the same "essence" files, but different files for things like audio, subtitles, etc.. Not only that, but you can create "supplemental" packages that allow you to insert sequences or shots from different essence files in the proper place during play out. Having the picture finished by reels allows this kind of flexibility to be much simpler to implement and program. You can create a DCP with one full length essence track, but no studio level theatrical features are done that way."

Ok. But so it also means that you no longer need to mind the reels during editing right? It can be arbitrarily split anywhere and using any criteria. Because back in the film projection days, unless you wanted the audience to know exactly when the projectionist would change the reel, you had to mind it during the editing and have the splits in places that would make sense.
