I don't really consider it "correct" if it doesn't do what a user expects, plus as I understood the discussion neither ffplay nor MPlayer nor VLC and probably WMP, flash player etc. will not show the video correctly if encoding e.g. a BluRay to DVD resolution via nvenc and playing it back.
If they do I'll have to reconsider, but if they don't it isn't working, "correct" or not.
