Yes indeed, this is particularly true for the second part, encoders etc.
that are very easy to call via command line (dvdauthor reads and generates xml 
A different story would be for povray, which integration would be similar, on 
the conceptual side
 to csound whitin cm. Infact, a part for the final step, the command line to 
invoke in order to excecute some scripts, all the calls for the scripts 
(lights, camera, reflections, objects, textures etc.) should somehow imported 
into cm in order to write them in lisp, Yes indeed this work would be rather 
tedious than complicated....
