I believe Adam accurately answered your question about the NUV. As for
the commerical flagging, you notice that it is "flagging", not "cutting"
that is done. If you are looking for how to automatically convert your
commercial flags into a cutlist used by transcoding, search the list
archives for a thread titled "Automatically load commercial skip list
into cutlist" and you'll see that Chris Pinkham gave an excellent
example of how to do this just 5 days ago.
