I agree with the code, and disagree with the naming. By calling it HDTV 
you imply the transmission to be HD. This is not neccesarilly true. The 
code means it is using advanced codec (= H.264) This can be both SD and 
HD. I agree with you that for the moment it will be HD. I am expecting 
though that DVB-T and IP distribution will also use it for SD, as they 
are pretty much bandwidth limited and can use every possibility to 
better use their bandwidth.

Another protest against this naming would be from US, where HD is very 
much distributed over MPEG2. (though expect the US to also go to H.264)
