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).

This should be a must.
