Another thing that I forgot about is what if someone with a 16:9 screen was watching your 4:3 video. On the 16:9 screen, all of the available video would be viewable because there is more screen available on the sides. If you shrank your video down to the safe zone, you would see that on that 16:9 screen. Not only would you have the normal bars which results from a 4:3 video on a 16:9 screen, you would be adding 2 more bars from you shrinking down the screen to the safe action zone.
Shoot with all those strips on the screen, your TV will start looking like a Zebra. X-D
