My comment about being a rock star and flouting "the rules" was based on my memory of seeing Punch Drunk Love which is filled with ultra fast tracking shots, whip pans and other Paul Thomas Anderson signature camera moves. There's a shot in a grocery store that strobed so badly in the theatre that it hurt your eyes... it simply must have been on purpose (and was shot on film) -- campbell soup cans at beginning of the video below).

However there is another shot from the second trip to the grocery store, where you could assume (although probably incorrectly) that they kept the dolly speed of a specific tracking just below the point of strobing and then quickly increased speed past that point to get a blur. (about 1:25 in the same video). Again, this is my imagination at work, but it's an illustration of what Jon just said.
