and what about  anamorphic material?
A 16:9 SD broadcast in fact still is 4:3 but is streached by the TV to
16:9 to look ok (no egg-heads).
Wouldn't it be correct also to draw the OSD anamorphic so that is not
screached by the TV?

Did you get the point? It's somehow difficult to describe this topic for me.
