However there's no point, as VHS is originally stored in an S-Video like signal.
This is the correct answer.
VHS is heterodyned/color-under recording, which results in downconverted chroma/color + luminance/detail.
It's very similar to s-video (separated video) which is luma + chroma.
Composite is a single luma/chroma signal. All data is in a single data stream. (Laserdisc is composite.)
