I'm afraid this is pretty pointless as this was carried from the
original code and was probably only targeting a specific set of
alternative rates.

For a same bitrate, having a lower resolution with higher quality vs
higher res with lower quality has no real benefit when final rendering
is rescaled.

Instead, we might want to never exceed the device resolution.
And we can't have any feedback from vout.
