I think it is serendipitous and a good omen...
Peter, 35mm as a display medium, rather than a capture format, is nowhere near the performance of 4k. Its ability to display detail is actually significantly lower than 1080p/2k systems. This confusion of capture and display performance of film has led to a huge amount of misunderstanding in this area. Kodak Vision 200T color negative 5274, as an example, can capture 4000 lines, but that is not representative of a release print with its cascading generational MTF reductions. Thats even before it meets the PJ, let alone the image that actually falls onto the screen.
I can display a pristine print back to back with its BD equivalent and very easily see the superior small area contrast and detail, ie resolution and MTF, of the digital system. Thats with a 35mm image well beyond a normal commercial cinema.
If you wish further detail, just holler.
