Lynch is very much against chapter stops, and it's not just to do with the
sex scenes in Mulholland Dr.  I found the quotation I was after in a  post
to alt.movies.david-lynch, so I've cut and pasted it from there:

"The placard sent with the DVD of The Straight Story:

  I know that most DVDs have chapter stops.
It is my opinion  that a film is not like a book--
              it should not be broken up.
It is a continuum and should be seen as such.
        Thank you for your understanding

                          David Lynch"

So unfortunately I don't think we should expect to see chapter stops on any
of the DVDs that have been overseen by Lynch himself.
