I should have expanded it a bit and say "the signal for 1080i can be
encoded...", which is what happens on most TV Cable shows, and many HD
cameras, like the Sony XDCam. The idea being that you can save a lot of
bandwidth by using non-square pixels. The end result is a 16:9 frame, 1080
resolution. BTW, I don't believe that Blender should be worried about it.
Most compositing systems, like After Effects, can handle mixed resolution so
we should just have presets for 720p and 1080p at square pixels. The rest
can be achieved by playing with the pixel/frame/interlace values.
