My wife uses the video feature on her iPod quite a bit when we're  
traveling.   And video podcasts are a great idea for the subway -  
just as good as reading a magazine, only the pictures move!   So  
don't be too attached to the idea that this is just marketing  
fluff.   The lack of H.264 support is a definite weakness.

Unless you're encoding a long run of video, I don't think this is a  
major issue.   If you are, yeah, hardware encoding for H.264 sounds  
like a great idea.
