@kevinmarks-b I'm not aware of tests with letterboxed content, though I know it is a practice that is used for example in DVD players that play 16:9 video in a 4:3 aspect ratio video output. I've not seen many implementations that work well though - there is often some overlap between the subtitles and the active image, which is somewhat jarring. 

More importantly, letterboxing tends to be an exceptional case rather than the norm, so it is not a general solution.
