Fast Start and *.mp4 vs *.mov

Am I correct in thinking that *.mp4 files do not have a QuickStart capability until they are re-saved in a *.mov container such as happens when one opens an *.mp4 file with QuickTime Player Pro and then do a Save as | Self-contained.

Put another way, there is no method that can imbue an *.mp4 file with Quick Start capability except putting it into a QuickTime container?

Assuming that the above is correct, does this principle also apply to *.m4a and *.m4v files as well?
