Makes sense.

On a related note, have you considered how the constant qp mode should
work? I found this discussion:


which noted that x264 sets the I and B frame quantizers to ratios of
the P quantizer in crf mode (equivalent to const qp), while nvenc sets
all three to the same value. Should nvenc set different values too?
