You might be interested in the work of the BBC, et al producing the
ATLANTIC MOLE.  I don't know how specific to MPEG the work was, but
they tackled this problem (and the similar one of video degradation from
multiple encode steps) a long time ago...


(NB: I also have no idea whether patents, etc. are involved here.  It
might turn out to be completely useless due to them...)
