I personally prefer Rich's approach since it requires less work overall.
Also you might be interviewing someone as they walk around their gallery,
commenting on paintings. Stopping and starting would interupt the dialog,
and potentially loose important information.
Same goes for georeferencing video files, something that I've been thinking
about a lot lately. I believe that MPEG-4 can have metadata for each frame.
Talk about precision!
