I might be wrong because projection TVs work differently than LCD ones. But have you ever used the latter at a resolution lower than its native one, say on a computer ? Horrible, horrible graphics. Without upscale, my SD tv signal looks awful on my HDTV.
No matter what, an SD signal is going to be upscaled for display on your HDTV. It's just a question of whether it's the TV or the player that's doing it.

But you're right. I might be talking out of my ass about higher resolutions.
Downscaling is generally easier than upscaling. After all, it's always been easier to destroy than to create.
