Anybody familiar with PAL->NTSC DVD conversion? (progressive question)

I'm converting some of my PAL movie DVDs to NTSC so that I can watch them on regular NTSC players.

Is there any reason why I should NOT convert them into 23.97 fps progressive video with the 3:2 pulldown *flag* enabled (only the flag, not actually perform 3:2 pulldown during encoding). I'm watching them on a 4:3 TV.

This seems to give absolutely brilliant results with no interlacing artifacts and the encoding time is fairly fast in TMPEG. However, prior to this, I was always told to encode it as 29.97 fps interlaced video. That always took longer to encode and left some interlacing artifacts. Is this wrong?
