For me... Preference #1 is Original Aspect Ratio. I always want to see in the intended aspect, even if that means unused parts of my TV screen. Preference #2, I will admit my eyes wouldn't be offended if more 16x9 original aspect was generated. I suspect most things generated for TV airing will be that way... and theatrical releases will continue to have variances... but if movie studios started framing more new movies for 16x9 and made that a "standard" for the future, I'd be ok with that too. Mainly, I just want it the way it was intended.. and if the intentions happen to go towards 16x9 that would be fine with me.
