HDMI 1.2 gives you DSD over HDMI. The only thing that could be useful in a SD or hidef DVD player is the audio synch feature of HDMI 1.3. IIRC the sink (display) can report how much time is takes to process audio so the player can adjust video and audio output synchronization. For hidef DVDs, some people may want to send the new lossloss movie audio as a bitstream to a processor/receiver - this is where the new audio sync feature should come in handy.
