I've tested to convert MP2 audio to AC3, E-AC3 and AAC respectively with 
default bit rate in my remuxed "HDV.m2ts" file for Blu-ray

Stream #0:1[0x1100]: Audio: ac3 (AC-3 / 0x332D4341), 48000 Hz, stereo, 
fltp, 192 kb/s
Stream #0:1[0x1100]: Audio: eac3 (EAC3 / 0x33434145), 48000 Hz, stereo, 
fltp, 192 kb/s
Stream #0:1[0x1100]: Audio: aac (LC) ([6][0][0][0] / 0x0006), 48000 Hz, 
stereo, fltp, 128 kb/s

Re. aac, ffmpeg reported:
[mpegts @ 0x5620ca0a9580]
Stream 1, codec aac, is muxed as a private data stream and may not be 
recognized upon reading.

Playback with VLC and and Gnome Videos movieplayer (Totem) was ok for 
AC3 and E-AC3
No audio for AAC.

I think I go for E-AC3 for "HDV.m2ts with re-encoded audio" on Blu-ray discs
