The way I would like to see this work is to define an arbitrary number
of recording profiles, each with its own transcoding profile.  In your
example, each recording profile would have the same high bitrate
settings, but with different transcoding settings.

This could also be useful for using different transcoding settings for
HDTV recordings.  Of course, with HDTV, I would like for it to
automatically select a different profile based on the format (1080i,
720p, 480p, etc.).
