Because using it, without a lens is the worst of both worlds. When in 16:9 you have an initially (always) zoomed image to fill the 2.35 screen. To see 16:9 properly (well, not properly, but at the right aspect), you downscale the 16:9 image drastically to fit the now zoomed image. When you want 2.35, you get it in a zoomed format, so you never use the projectors full panel to produce image and you lose the light that could have otherwise come from the image chip. For a Lumagen only scenario, you are always zoomed, never taking advantage of the PJ's brightness and 16:9 images are substantially reduced in resolution. Would you be happy with a 720p projector? Probably not. Then why woudl you be happy with one that's 810p? Same reason.

Now if all you are considering is a low end (lowest?) lens that is known to introduce chromatic aberation and astigmatism/focus issues, maybe you'd be happier with 810p.
