Best (or good) container for documentary delivery = MXF?

I need to deliver some interview footage to an ad agency for some interviews I shot.

I asked the agency what format they wanted the footage delivered in, but they were not exactly sure. He was not a video guy, just an ad executive, but seemed to think his editors could work with anything. However, I think thats unlikely.

Is a HD 422 1920X1080 60i 50 Mbps 24bit PCM uncompressed audio MXF file fully compatable with FCP? I know it is with Vegas.

I need to send this out tonight as Im going on travel, so I dont have time to mess with the ad guy any more. I was told the destination is DVD, if that matters.

Thanks for any feedback.

Call the ad guy *now* and ask him to give you the contact information for his video editors. Failing that, your best bet is to render in a variety of codecs, hoping to hit one one that works with the editor's editing rig.
