It doesn't, but that doesn't entirely answer his question, either.
And I don't think there *is* an answer that derives from anything else.
I think whether each program source continues to send 4:3, or at least
protect for 4:3, is going to be up to them, and we won't find out until
they do it.
I would hope that converters would do P&S in addition to LB; I don't
much like it but other people will scream.
