Considering the Blu Rays are actually 16:9 and have the black bars hard coded into the image that isn't an issue, surely? Its actually kind of annoying for people who do want to stretch it, because the TV already see's it as 16:9.
With HD there is no native 4:3, so when a 4:3 image is seen on Blu-Ray it's in 16:9, but with the pillar boxes.

And as for widescreen broadcasts, CBS would be absolute idiots if they didn't make 16:9 masters, since stations would pay thousands more for a 16:9 HD version than the current 4:3 HD versions.
