I think FFMBC's way is a good start.
- framerate specified as usual with -r
- interlaced specified as usual with -tff
- everything else (including chroma and bitrate) comes from the target name

- Fourcc/-vtag should be set by the template (ffmbc set the vtags for imx but fail to set them for xdcamhd)
- Aspect-Ratio must be set to 16/9 for HD and a warning raised if not 4/3 nor 16/9 for SD.

At the end, a target would be rather represent a family of fourcc rather than a unique fourcc.
Target names would be : imx30, imx40, imx50, xdcamhd422 (ie. the 50Mb/s variant, all other variants are becoming rare nowadays, I don't know if you intend to include them)
