Not a good idea at all. It generates garbage video.

No. You need to use a tool aware of the specifics of the DVD Video
format. The VOB files there are not video containers, they are a
container for a kind of virtual filesystem on top of the real
filesystem, indexed by the IFO files. You need a tool that can
understand that.

The dvd2concat script shipped with FFmpeg is an example of such a tool,
but it is very rudimentary.
