So to the original point; is 4:2:0 not considered broadcast quality even though it can be broadcast? Or is 4:2:2 merely considered post-production or dubbing quality (as originally intended).

What about VHS recorded with 4 heads on a fresh tape, fully bulked, with flying erase heads, in SP with a source routed into the deck's enclosure in Y/C separation?

It is however common to see commercial material that's too long. 30.5 seconds, sometimes more... I suspect that's the reason for most incidents of spots cutting out before complete. That time has to come from somewhere... too many excessively-long spots, and either you upcut the spots or you upcut the program... I think most stations program their automations to give a 30-second spot 30 seconds.
We've also had timing issues here. Our operators are under instructions not to override the automation -- the newscast goes off the air at 10:34:20, if News can't finish it by then it's their problem.
We haven't come anywhere near the newscast on channel 3 that ran **3 minutes** over.
