you mean bitrate instead of framerate, don't you?

you cannot improve quality by reencoding, so it's no use doing it. it 
will probably even result in worse quality if you reencode.

the only case where i could imagine that you'd get better quality by 
reencoding is if you did de-interlacing or s.th. like that
