Remember that I've described low level storage values that will be in
the database, not how these values will be presented to users.
Certainly grouping bitrates as you say is the better way to present the
info to users.

I'm also going to try to have a 'speed tester' available so that people
who have no idea what they are doing can at least have an easy way to
figure out what they can handle.
