                                     ^ double-dash.

Also, unless I missed something and it already is, the estimated
mapping of quality to bitrate (the image whose URL I don't have handy
right now) should be somewhere in the documentation, or at least
linked to.

Perhaps a short note like "Transition Guide -- From Bitrate to
Quality", that might also mention comparisons to bitrates of other
formats as well.
