It would be perfect, but I've a feeling that with the home cinema market being a bit of a niche, this would end up being a niche within a niche.
Philips and Visio tried it with 21:9 tvs and that seems to have failed in the market as neither seem to be making them any more.
With the scope projectors that were available being $30k+, it was cheaper to buy a good quality projector and ISCO or equivalent lens to get the same result. Only difference being some pincushion.
With current Sony 4K projectors we could use the horizontal portion for a fixed 2.35 and mask the rest and it would still be cheaper. Zooming with 4k would work for the majority as pixel sizes would be much smaller and make the advantage of a lens less noticeable. Some would still use a lens so as to not throw away 2 million pixels.
I would love a native scope pj, but until that actually happens at an affordable price, we'll have to stick with lenses or zooming.

I trust Gary Lightfoot more than James Cameron.
