This will result in better video bandwidth. Actually, a recent unofficial 'extension' of the SCART (Peritel) standard includes S-Video, with Luminance / Sync on the normal video pin (21 if memory serves) and Chrominance on the red video pin (15). This is the case at least on my Hitachi 21" TV. I have converted a breakout box to provide the chrominance input instead of video out, so that I can connect S-Video devices to the TV without requiring 4 pin mini DIN connectors.
