if you consider that DVD is the only way to look at video, then yes, you got a problem.

To mention other methods

D-VHS (no, tapes doesn't sucks, what about you DV cam ?)
computer files on DVD , played with computer.
playing directly from computer Harddisk
using your HDV cam to play back.
using a compatible HD DVD (Bravo or others coming next)

Anyway the storage media is not the only problem.
Do you own an HD compatible screen ?

The movies you rent from Blockbuster aren't HD DVD. It's all down converted to SD. If its half as good as HD and better than DV. It'll give us a better image.

It's always better to start out with the highest quality. Then work your way down from there if needed.

YOU MUST THINK AHEAD. THERE WILL BE HD-DVD SOON, AND WHO CARES ABOUT THE DVD FORMAT. DV CAMERAS SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE A WEB CAMERA, IN A FEW YEARS THEY WILL ALL BE IN A THRIFT SHOP, OR MAYBE KIDS WILL LIKE THEM.

well, in fact if you have an HDV source to go to RGB and downsize to SD, then you would have a 4:4:4 SD master to work from and that is very nice ;)

Not exactly 4:4:4, more like 4:2:2 :) Consumer HD is not likely to be that common for at least a decade. There are still a lot of VHS out there and DVD is beginning to be a widely used standard even though it has been there for years. I know a lot of people still buying VHS tapes even though I've totally stopped buying them for 6 years now. A lot of interlace 4:3 television sets are still being bought and not much true HD broadcasting yet. DV will be around for quite some time still even though we, the indie filmmakers, (some but not all of us) have already decided to switch, we are far ahead of the average consumer market (except the guys eager to impress their neighbors with their hi-tech gadgets...) :D.

The XL2 might have been a mistake from an "HD indie fan" point of view but it will most definitely fill a large demand, like it or not.

a 16:9 DVD should automatically adjust to fit your screen's ratio, it does not matter if your TV is 4:3 or 16:9

Many (if not most) DVD players will letterbox a 16:9 image to fit on a 4:3 screen. It's a matter of going into your DVD player's settings.

Alternatively, these days you can find consumer 4:3 TVs with raster compression, which would give even better resolution because all the TV lines go into the image, instead of being wasted on blank space.

I just had this discussion the other day with a friend that still has SD clients and will want future SD projects. He felt that HDV would not be good for him right now. Not true, he can shoot the project in HD, edit HD and the make a SD version from that HD final master. The positive side, he will have a HD master for his client down the road, and archive the HD master. It's no different if you were doing a photo shoot and you had a choice between shooting with a 3MP or a 11MP digital SLR. I would start out with the best and go from there.

You are right. Still, upgrading to HD acquisition is a thing, upgrading to HD editing is another when you already have a SD workstation and you want to make the most out of it. The push to do the changes will not be as efficient to everybody, people will wonder why they should pay more for a similar result. I would, because of the final product being better when shot in HD downsized but the client often are unable to see the difference and won't pay more for an equivalent result. It's all a question of demand from the clients.
