i don't think it's silly, i would want it. i can't imagine most people WOULDN'T want it. ask any man on the street if they would think a tv is cool that has 16X more resolution than their current tv and i'm sure most people would say, "yes i want that". contrast this to when people were asked if they want 3D tv's and the average man on the street said... meh.
what IS silly is how this industry cannot figure out what consumers want and how to get it to them. meaning the whole industry (tv, movies, etc). there has to be content provided for it.
