Re 1), it would be very boring not to have an in-camera choice of framing the subject, don't you think? With the gigantic film area, medium format photographers could happily crop, but I think the 3:2 format for 35mm was quite realistic given the plebs would take a lot of scenics with it. I think they tried panoramic film in some slimline cameras similar to 110 cartridge film but they were not a big part of the market.

I find 3:2 useful to shoot sports in the portrait orientation. If they made a 2:3 sensor I wouldn't need a battery grip. Getting the camera level for landscapes might be trickier though.
