Max height in presets

Is there a reason this isn't used? It makes sense when converting 4:3 content, eg, if you converted a 640x480 video for the iPod Touch without including a max height, it would result in a 480x360 video, which is bigger than it needs to be for the screen. It's honestly not really an problem, since it only takes a couple of seconds to change, but I'm wondering if there's a technical issue behind it.

You mean why it isn't used in the built-in presets? Since I don't have any Apple devices I just basically copied the presets from HandBrake as accurately as I could. They only specify max width in those. I'm actually not sure why they have it that way.
