Fair enough.  I guess then my point is that offering some sort of raw 'Quantizer' knob to an end user of a codec is a baad idea.  The user usually wants to go for maximum quality M (Q could be confusing), limited to peak datarate P, with average datarate D.  These are the sorts of knobs a good codec should be presenting to the world.
