"But am I not correct in the assumption that the increased fill factor of the C2 Fine panels will result in taking the SDE out of the equation from inside 1.25 X screen width or less?"
Increased compared to what is the question. IIRC 720P C2Fine was going to have about 10% higher fill factor (55% vs 50%) than D5, but 1080P was going to be less than D5.
In any case, IMO the increased pixel count is a much more important factor.
"Why would anyone even consider a 720P projector at this time w/ all the 1080 HD-DVD and Blu-Ray media out and arriving daily?"
As you said, cost, and unless they're going to sit closer than 1.7 SW, they'll likely not even see the increased res.
