It depends a lot if projectors are going to be used or screens.

With the new coming big size screens, sometimes, especially in new
buildings, you can find them instead of projectors.

But most of the times you'll find an old projector 4:3... I hate them and I
know and am with you that the future is and has to be 16:9.

But... i find really useful to have slides in 4:3 to put them in 16:9
videos, having room for the speaker face shot by cameras and usually a
logo, just like we use to have at our conferences and at FOSDEM.

So I'm with Italo believing that fixing the resizing behavior should be the
best, and probably not so difficult to achieve (it should just be: don't do
anything :).

I'd prefer to have all the objects to be placed correctly than having them
all stretched. Also because if correctly used, it should be just matter of
master slides and layouts to be modified, almost without having to touch
every single slide.

Your voice has been heard, like many other on G+. The change is about the
default where today >70% have to switch from 4:3 to widescreen. In future
it is the minority including you who has to change the format. The
functionality remains as it is.

   + good idea (Heiko), bad idea (Jay)

I have sent a comment by email but it looks like it has been ignored:
most conference centers still have 4:3 configurations, so switching to
16:9 would be a problem for all people speaking at conferences (with a
few exceptions). There should be a resizing feature which allows to
switch from 4:3 to 16:9 without changing the aspect ratio of iterms on
the slide (which is what happens today). A large slide with more white
space is not a problem, and is often acceptable, as much as a narrower
slide with less white space. A large slide with all objects stretched
orizontally is not acceptable (and needs a lot of rework).

   + perhaps make it dependent on the actual screen dimension (Eric)

This should be a must.
