Did you ever actually try this ?
I did, for two projections during a dance-piece, and two dvd-players
of the same brand, same type, will typically give you about 5 to 10%
difference, say about two minutes out of sync after half an hour.
I've never met somebody who could explain to me why this happens, but
it is reality.

I like you idea of 'necessity' though.....
