I don't think this makes sense:
Either you are showing content where the speed (and duration) can be
changed but this does not matter - such content is rare but likely
exists, in this case you don't need any motion compensation at all.
Or you don't want to change the speed (and duration) of your video,
then you can either drop / duplicate frames or use motion compensation:
One of these techniques is very fast, the other extremely slow...

To shorten this discussion a little:
If you go from 24000/1001 or 24 to 25, it should be acceptable to
change the speed, just force an input framerate of 25 and change
the audio pitch.
If your input is 30000/1001, you either have to drop frames or
use some kind of motion compensation.
