Question DVD Backup - InfoEdit Method Summary

There now appears to be 4 preffered ways of (ahem..) backing up movie DVD's depending on size of original movie and personal prefs using Infoedit as the core application

1. Decrypt (DVD Decrypter), Split 2 to 2 DVD+/- R's (IfoEdit or Your new tool), Burn to 2 discs (Nero etc)
2. Decrypt (DVD Decrypter), Strip unneeded atreams (IfoEdit), Burn to 1 disc (Nero etc)
3. Decrypt (DVD Decrypter), Encode .m2v (ReMpeg2), Remux .m2v / Strip Steams IfoEdit), Burn to 1 disc (Nero etc)
4. Decrypt (DVD Decrypter), then new process involving CCE/ Rempeg, VobEdit and the new authoring function in Infoedit

I use method 1 for very large movies (>150mins) as the resulting encoded movie is often too choppy. Method 2 is great when the movie is short enough and when there are lots of unnecessary audio and sub title streams. Method 3 is the most used option as most movies are less than 150 mins but method 2 will not get below 4.5Gb.

Method 4 is a new route and (appears) to be more complex but achieve the same result as method 3 above. So the question is, are there any advantages to be had by using this new method in terms of quality / reliability etc? If not I will continue using method 3 as my default approach as it is easy to implement.
