XSVCD is actually a comparable bitrate and res to DVD, so if it can be authored as such without a re-encode, it won't lose any quality. SVCD is certainly lower, and I'd bet most people can tell the difference in the video quality pretty easily.

We agree on this point: there is no reason to use anything other than DVD, epsecially at a site like this where maintaining the original quality so that others can enjoy it in the same way is key.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
