We cover the iTunes commentary at TrekCore: http://trekcore.com/blog/2013/09/int...ed-commentary/
Can I watch the variable aspect ratio version from iTunes without the commentary? Is the digital copy that comes with the Blu-ray the same as the stand-alone iTunes version?
The digital download will give you the stand-alone iTunes version of the film, yes. The commentary track (with the variable aspect ratio) is a separate download, and a separate encoding of the film - and it's not available without the commentary audio.
That stinks (but thank you for the information). It's not a deal breaker (I value the film over the special features) but I was hoping they would take a cue from the Dark Knight films re: variable aspect ratio.
