True, but the side panel can be easily hidden, in addition, it is not the only
available interface layout and many more come in (MUFFIN!).
On the other hand, if a user uses the 16: 9 format it is because it is the most
useful, practical and that gives him more space to present the content and in
the end that is what is important.

> 2. users have easy access to switch to it in the sidebar

The same if default is 16:9 and you want to use another page format.

> 3. most of our templates arent 16:9

How could this be solved? Means that each template must have a file for each
page format (eg 4:3, 16:9, 16:10, etc.). Whatever the decision, the most
popular formats for users should be offered IMHO.

> 4. most other presentation apps havent switch over to it

As I mentioned above when opening the report, most other presentation
applications changed to 16:9 by default.

> 5. users who prefer 16:9 can easily create a 16:9 template as their default

That's right, but I do not think it's the way to see the problem. Why keep the
4: 3 format by default? More than being the most popular or used format (it is
not already) is a legacy format and in my case, I have a template 4.3 for these
cases (contrary to what you propose).
