I think it is stupid to do so.
You can still play your DVD's, the rare occasion I do so, I just pop them in my HTPC MacMini with BR drive.
In 2013 we can finally watch movies as they were intended, so why reuse the crap that DVD ever was?
I mean, they either do a lousy 2/3 pullup to 60fps on NTSC, or a 2/2 pull up with overal 104% speed increase on PAL. And they interlace too! And then you have Handbrake turning this crap into progressive again? No, thank you.
BR disks and HD downloads are just as intended 23.976 progressive, the only way movies should be encoded, with subtitles as UTF-8 files with separate fonts, not bitmaps that are impossible to use with your custom subtitle settings.
And for DVD rips: it is easier to download the DVD rips you would otherwise make yourself. Less work, and in many countries falling under the category home-copy as well.
If I really like a movie to watch it another 5 times, I buy a BR disc. The quality of DVD is no match and the price is often the same as a HD download, without account/DRM crap, yet much better in quality. For convenience I download the BRrip under the same home-copy law to keep the most used discs scratch free.
