Hooray? More GBA Video?

One of these days, I'm sure they'll move onto "DS Video" or something similar. While the DS demographic is supposed to be older, I don't see why they wouldn't try such a thing with cartoon shows, or even movies, once the DS user base becomes significant. The touch screen of the DS seems almost ideal for VCR controls and/or DVD-style chapter menus.
