SD did not make it clear themselves as
to their future plans.  Their wording
at the time of the change suggested
that when ATSC 3.0 moves out of
the current testing modes, and all
the usual apps start supporting AC4
and HEVC decoding they *might*
go back to sharing the same major.minor
as people would expect "the best quality
possible" when selecting a channel.
But they were sufficiently wishy washy
that I simply am not sure (they may
also choose to change their apps to
support additional selection criteria).

This is still a WIP (and, btw, the most
amusing issue to me is that it turned
out there are broadcasters using HEVC
interlaced, and pretty much no app
supported that properly (only LG TV's
did it right).

At this point anyone who wants
to be on the bleeding edge should
expect to leave behind some red
on the floor.
