You are the only 16:9 advocate who is asking for optional widescreen to be included. I respect and support that. It's the best solution we could possibly get.
But it would mean doubling the number of discs in the set, so there's no way in hell CBS would go for it.
With blu-ray I wonder if it is feasible to have an 'intelligent zoom' where the image is pre-cropped by someone to ensure it looks right and can be turned on or off rather than just losing the top and bottom of the picture.
If there's enough picture on the sides, I think that would be possible, but I don't believe there is.

I recall reading that the recent "Highlander" TV series blu-rays had, instead of black bars on the sides, colored bars that would sort of shift to match the on-screen action. I don't know if fans found it more distracting than not, but it was interesting to see someone trying something different with the frame differences.
