If you will be delivering as SD (DVD), then perhaps keep the production workflow as SD. For instance, if you put SD clips into an HD sequence, they get upscaled (= soft). Now if you export to DVD (SD) you are taking the SD video that was upscaled (softened already) and then converting it from HD back to SD = not pretty compared to exporting SD straight to DVD. No sense upscaling unless you must deliver HD.

If you DO need to deliver as HD, can you use 720p rather than 1080p? Even if the "other" sources are 1080p, maybe downscale those to 720p, then the SD won't have to be blown up as far as it would require if editing as 1080. A compromise.

Meaning make a 720p Sequence in Premiere, and mix the 1080p and SD clips in it, and export as 720p. The HD clips will still be HD and look great, and the upscaled SD clips won't look as obvious as they would in a 1080p export.
