Sounds reasonable enough to me. I like our burnt in sub work with gate weave and all. but it’s not really how a BD release would ever look.
Soft subs would end up looking like the TFA subs, more or less (though surely better), which look professional, fine, and close enough in spirit.
Seamless branching would open up a whole ton of playback and compatibility issues for some people. I still see the occasional post here from someone struggling to convert the SSE to mkv with just one of the branch options, or getting playback hiccups at the branch point, etc.
