Sounds like you are referring to volume anamorphosis.

Quite - but this is something that needs to be corrected for, on only a percentage of images - and even where this is desirable, it will usually be a good idea to still have first corrected the image in rectilinear terms - as a starting point. So we need to get the general-purpose correction workflow sorted out first IMO.

The "wideangle distortion effect" is a viewing distance/magnification related effect, and not strictly speaking a technical flaw. Print the pictures oversize or put your nose against them, and the problem goes away (grin)

But I do agree that where pictures taken with a very wideangle lens are to be viewed in sequence together with ones taken with more standard lenses, this needs to be considered... btw off-centre cropping makes this issue especially awkward.

Besides DXO and purpose-designed plugins/utilities, I find the perspective output choices of the pano stitcher "PTGui" offer some rich ways to re-package a scene's content, into other types of 2D projection - which may suit its subject better than rectilinear does.
