Okay, but wait a minute: he indicates dotted half for 3/4. Just like the dotted eighth for 3/8 in the beginning. Every metronome marking corresponds to the measure(meter) length. So?

Maybe this complex way ensures smoother transitions?....or easier to slide into?

I think that an eighth=x would suffice for eighth-note meters, quarter for quarter, etc......

No, they don't.

The meter change right before that marks the beat in the tempo mark, even though a measure of 2/2 is a metric unit, just like 3/8 and 3/4. http://i.imgur.com/JndSQfR.png
