Wouldn't it be all around better to use a final file format that's progressive and lossless (I've got Huffy, I'll experiement with that)?
All comes back down to, what is your final product? Are you putting the video on the web, archiving your work, or putting onto DVD? DV isn't stuck at 29.976, just 720x480. I've made plenty of 18fps and 23.976 DV files.

HUFFYUV and Lagarith (which is basically HUFFYUV but tweaked, you get much smaller file sizes) are great for archiving, but they will take up alot of room.
