I suppose you could say 384Kbps DD wouldn't affect the 8Mbps number much. And maybe there is a VBR for audio to get that down farther.
Clearly no HD DVD-ROM is likely to be manufactured with no audio. What should be quoted is the time for an expected release.
DVD came out with a claim of 135 minutes on a single layer (2GB per DVD hour)
HD DVD comes out claiming 4 hours on a single layer (3.75GB per HD DVD hour)
I never thought I'd ever use the term CONSERVATIVE to refer to the marketing number of single layer DVD. :)
