A sincere question about video....

OK, I don't do video so I am newer than a newbie.

But...... With the convergence of stills and video I do want to understand it and think about how people are going to use it in the future (I.e. burried on the hard drive, on an HD video picture frame). So, to better educate myself I've started looking on vimeo at GH1 movies as they are uploaded.

So with that long intro and now this preamble here is my question. The best video has been edited down and moves back and forth with diferent clips and camera angles. Never is it one continuous video stream. In these instances the 15 minute limitation is completely irrelevant.

So, is there a whole genre of video that is done as one long, long clip or why do people get so uptight about the European limitation?

Please not a flame war just a civilized discussion.
