The mpeg2video encoder in libavcodec only supports mpeg-range levels.
Even if the mpeg2 specification allows anything else (which would
surprise me) it is very unlikely that the FFmpeg encoder will be changed
as no player would support playing the output correctly.

Did you test yesterdays command line with "-f mov"? I would expect
that to keep the levels you need.

In case I forgot so far: Only current FFmpeg git head is supported on this
mailing list.
