Because neither is DefaultDuration. I also think it's a very, very bad
idea to scale it; especially with the 1ms granularity which we use by
default. That would make most values pretty imprecise (e.g. N/ATSC
broadcast: 1000000000ns/(60/1.001) = 16683333ns, scaled to 1ms
precision => 16 or 17, depending on what the muxer writes).

Kind regards,
