Maybe not right now, as HDTV is only in its infancy,
but down the road I would think so.  As more and more
Americans start getting HDTVs, I can see a demand
developing for something like this, and someone in the
industry will eventually figure it out and make good
money from it.  But right now, the vast majority of
Americans still only have NTSC sets, and as long as
thats the case its not a feasible business decision
